Very readable translations of 80 narratives collected by Walker from oral sources in Turkey, 1961-89, and now part of the Archive of Turkish Oral Narrative at Texas Tech University. Among the stories are versions of familiar European folktales, and of tales recounted in the Arabian Nights and other Arabic collections. Includes a guide to the pronunciation of Turkish names and a glossary of ideas (rather than terms) that might be unfamiliar to lay readers. Nicely illustrated with block prints by Helen Siegl. Of interest to teachers and storytellers as well as to folklorists and area specialists. Indexed only by title. The 1993 paper edition of volume one (316-X) is $17.50.
