Nearly a quarter of a century since it was first published, this book still illuminates the current storytelling revival. Everyone has stories; and everyone can tell stories. This book shows us how. Ramon Royal Ross combines an excellent array of examples with a soft, colloquial how-to style. He includes useful exercises and comprehensive bibliographies that he has updated over the years. And in addition to exploring the various types of stories told (such as the folktale, the literary story, and the personal experience story), Ross delves into the how-tos and why-tos of other methods of storytelling, such as choral readings, the story board, puppetry, even singing and dancing. Instructions, pictures, and diagrams are included throughout the book to aid the reader in exploring these various fields. Updated with a fresh new look, new examples, and current bibliographies, this new edition will cause readers to take up the art once they finish it... and to refer back to it again and again.
