The Amazing Russian Vixen presents a collection of folk-tales centering on a mischievous woman-fox, very smart and sly, always looking for trouble, even without any benefits.
Drawing upon an understanding of Russian history and culture, the volume emerges in part out of a conceivable connection between folklore and a sense of national identity.
These famous and humorous stories are known by every child in Russia. The stories are about the vixen's schemes and what happens to her and others whom she meets as she attempts to carry out her plans. The stories reveal a great deal about the vixen's amazing creativity and endurance. If folklore reflects the character of the nation, maybe these stories disclose much about the Russian character. Who knows? We hope you will find the stories interesting and enjoyable.

Elvira Yurchenko-Jones, as a representative of Russian culture, introduces the most famous folk-tales from Russian folklore on which she was raised.
Elvira was born and raised in Russia. She graduated from the Institute of Culture and worked for twelve years as a librarian and bibliographer in the Far Eastern State Scientific library, the biggest library in the Far East of Russia. Elvira moved to the United States in 2002. She started to write these stories just to practice her English and have read them to some of her friends. People liked the stories and said they had never heard something like that before. The idea came to publish the stories in English language.
Elvira is very thankful to Dr. Annita Ward who helped her to edit and adjust the stories to the English language and to Greg Monacelli who brought the stories to life with images and colors.
