By Pamela K. Collins on April 15, 2008
Format: Paperback
Livo, Norma J. and Sandra A. Reitz, 1991. Storytelling Folklore Sourcebook.Englewood, CO: Libraries Unlimited, Inc.

Written by two professors of education this volume is a comprehensive resource book for the storyteller, teacher, performer, or just the curious reader. The author's mention, we cannot fully understand other people unless understand their view of the world. These views included customs, dances, foods, legends, superstitions, faerie folk, rhymes, and much more. A division into five parts has made it easier for the reader to grasp the entire book or refer to particular areas of interest.

In part one, the importance of being knowledgeable about other cultures, their folklore, and ho this knowledge will add to the authenticity of the stories to be told. Story voice is addressed and is the actual event. Research by the storyteller, will provide a more honestly told story, background will give wisdom, and wisdom reveals itself in the telling. Part two addresses story characters, heroes from different cultures. A good storyteller knows and understands its characters. Categories mentioned are bringers, tricksters, and Banshees. Looking at story artifacts in part three, cultural significance adds to the meaning of a story to the audience. Seen here are the stars, gems, rocks, minerals and stone, plants and flowers, and trees. Astronomy runs deeply in numerous cultures and a common thread binding us all. Story activities are found in part four, where customs, holidays, and festivals are explored. Divination, an ancient form of good magic, with war, and politics are addressed. Games are considered a reenactment of a cultures daily life, work, war and politics, there chasing, catching, hunting, seeking, and racing games.
