The Magic Orange Tree, and Other Haitian Folktales
Schocken Books, 1997 - Fiction - 212 pages
When Diane Wolkstein, herself a well-known storyteller traveled throughout the Haitian countryside in search of stories, she harvested a rich collection of twenty-seven tales, each of which is illuminated by fascinating introductory notes. From orange trees growing at the command of a child to talking fish, these stories present us with a world of wonder, delight, and mystery.
With a foreword by Edwidge Danticat
