Synopsis: Cuentos Filipinos is a collection of nine short stories, originally written in Spanish, portraying the life and times in nineteenth-century Philippines. The colorful and graphic vignettes describing the customs and traditions of our people come alive, as characters weave in and out of a historically and culturally documented milieu. The religious, political, and economic aspects of out society are objectively depicted, empirical data narrated, statistical figures enumerated, and places of interest unveiled in detail. In this journey through time, the natural richness of our country surfaces, and the interior wealth of our mountains reveals an astaounding diversity of ethnic groups. More facts unfold regarding our indulgence in games of chance and our penchant for the leisurely life. In the end, we have but to say that indeed we are a blessed people with a proud heritage. The author, Josť Montero y Vidal, was a distinguished historian of the Spanish era with the honor of being a miembro correspondiente of the Real Academia de la Historia. This translation makes creative works in Spanish about the Philippines more accessible to everyone especially historians, researchers, postcolonial critics, literary aficionados, and students. Furthermore, knowledge and awareness of our past make understanding and appreciation of our present more profound. -RenŠn S. Prado
