Review quote

If you like your fables with a dash of bloodshed, then The Girl Sudan Painted Like a Gold Ring is the anthology you've been waiting for. Author Theresa Fuller has collected a fascinating group of tales based on the oral storytelling history of the Sea Dyaks of Borneo.




The twist? The Dyaks were headhunters!




In this book you'll find stories designed to entertain and teach, all from the point of view of a culture based in honor, courtesy, and war. You'll read about Akal Pelandok the Ageless Mousdeer, the Were-Tiger's beautiful sister, and Pulang-Gana, the God of the Earth. Along the way, you'll also find out why the Dyaks were head hunters and learn some of the customs and traditions of the Sea Dyaks.




Originally, these were tales that would have been sung around fires or to young children. Now, Fuller delivers them in an equally entertaining format. Without a doubt, this is the perfect book for people who enjoy fables and fairy tales, but have been seeking something just a little bit different. So hold on to your head and dive in. The Girl Sudan Painted Like a Gold Ring will not disappoint.




- JG Faherty, author of The Cure, Sins of the Father, and The Burning Time.





"A fascinating exploration of subject matter exotic and taboo, as meticulous in its research as it is breathtaking in its presentation of mythology and folk tales which will be new to many readers, delivered with razor sharp precision."




- Gregory Lamberson, The Jake Helman Files and Black Creek
