Editorial Reviews

Review

China, the most populous country in the world, is also a nation of great diversity. In addition to the majority population of Han Chinese, there are some 56 officially recognized national minorities—including Tibetan, Mongol, Manchu, Zhuang, Dai, and Gaoshan. The folklore of these minorities is often obscure and difficult to find, as is information about the people, their cultural histories, and their traditional customs. This book fills a gap by offering more than 50 representative folktales from China's minorities, as well as background information on each of the ethnic groups.



"Yuan begins with a cultural overview of representative ethnic minorities, touching on languages, customs, clothing, religions, and festivals. …teachers and librarians developing curricula for the study of China will find this new volume a valuable asset, as will storytellers looking for source material."

-

School Library Journal



"This well-organized and richly documented volume is designed to give the American reader a fair view of China as a multi-ethic nation of diverse cultures…The contents of Princess Peacock provide extremely valuable material for the families of the many Chinese children adopted by Americans by introducing and reinforcing knowledge of their ethnic origins."
