The most comprehensive collection of classic Russian tales available in English—a rich, robust world of the imagination that will fascinate readers both young and old.
In this beautifully illustrated edition we meet both universal fairy-tale figures—thieves and heroes, kings and peasants, beautiful damsels and terrifying witches, enchanted children and crafty animals—and such uniquely Russian characters as Koshchey the Deathless, Baba Yaga, the Swan Maiden, and the glorious Firebird. Part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library, this collection of nearly two hundred tales curated by the outstanding Russian ethnographer Aleksandr Afanas’ev reveal the fascinating, centuries-old Russian storytelling tradition.
