Review quote

"Ten Traditional Tellers gives vivid glimpses of the social roles of verbal artists from ten very different oral traditional cultures. Letting the tellers speak for themselves, Margaret Read MacDonald has allowed ideas to emerge that are often surprising, demonstrating a wide variety of storytelling concepts." "MacDonald has provided a valuable contribution to the study of oral narratives and storytelling. . . . "Ten Traditional Tellers" is a solid contribution to the popularization of folklore and brings needed attention to wonderful storytellers."--"Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale " " "A successful melange of interviews and tales."--"Western Folklore""
