Since the political upheaval of the 1970s, the oral tradition in Laos has begun to fade, yet to date no folktale collections have covered the diversity of Laos and its people. This collection seeks to fill this gap in literature by offering tales of the Lao, Phutai, Phuan, Hmong, Khamu, and the Isaan. Organised by broad themes and types, it offers more than 50 tales, including creation myths, animal tales, Buddhist Jataka and moral stories, trickster tales, riddles, ghost stories, local legends and more from peoples on both sides of the Mekong River. In addition, the book includes general information about Lao geography, peoples and history, as well as recipes, games crafts, colour photos and line drawings.
