To come with a listening ear to this collection is to come to a smorgasbord of stories and storytellers. Even if you had never heard stories before, you would leave this table full of the knowledge of what storytelling is here and now, as well as what it has been everywhere in the world, throughout time, King Solomon to Brer Rabbit, the West Indies to French-Canadian Maine. These storytellers tell stories that resonate for them, stories in their variety of accents, sprinkled with their variety of languages, from cultures that bind them close and sing in their voices. There are stories that inspire laughter, stories that bring a tear, and most of all, stories intended to inspire discussion, understanding, and hope for the connection of all humans on this earth. These stories are designed for family listening by all but the youngest members. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
