Description

Here are Dan-Gun, the first emperor, whose mother was a bear; Shim Chung, who sacrificed herself to the sea to restore her father's sight, and the magistrate who tried to steal the Dragon King's daughter. The traditional Korean tales in this collection are full of amazing events and characters typical of the Far Eastern folklore. Sad, happy, romantic, and funny, together these tales bring vividly to life the magic of Korea. (reissue of ISBN 0-19-274160-8)show more
