For the past three decades, Lund University in Sweden has been running a research project on the heritage of the Kammu which has received international scholarly acclaim. The Kammu have a significance far beyond the realms of anthropology and folklore studies because they are a repository for much that that has been lost or ignored in the literate cultures of their neighbours: until recently they had an orally-based culture and as a people they ranged over much of southern China, Indochina and Thailand. Of particular importance, then, has been the recording of Kammu folklore before it succumbs to the modern world.
A number of books have been generated by this project, among them a series of studies recounting and analysing the repertoire of a single storyteller. This is the sixth volume in this series and, unlike the earlier volumes which dealt with tellers from northern Laos, this one deals with a teller from the northeastern Muang Khwa area.
The volume contains 19 stories, all annotated from both cultural and folklore aspects and illustrated by a young Kammu artist. One story is also given in the original language with an interlinear translation. Both tale type and motif indices are given.
