These thirteen tales from native cultures around the world share the theme of women, woman-spirit and animals. Professional storyteller Laura Simms has a splendid voice; she truly tells, rather than narrates, each piece. The nuances of each unusual story are enlivened with her spellbinding telling. The accompanying music, played on nineteen different instruments, is evocative and haunting. The uniqueness of the instruments, from the bamboo flute and didgeridoo to the Irish bodran drum to the caxixi, are of cultural interest in themselves.
