Cuentos Que Cuentan los Mapuches = Tales of the Mapuche Indians

Lectorum Publications, Manufactured by, Miguel Angel Palermo, Author Sudamericana $8.1 (0p) ISBN 978-950-07-1738-0
Gr 4-6-This well-written and entertaining title offers retellings of seven myths of the Mapuche Indians who lived in what is now Chile and Argentina. The legends encompass such universal topics as the creation story, trickster tales, evil witches, floods, and the disappearance of the sun, and the equally common jealous stepmother. A foreword introduces readers to the culture of the Mapuches (also known as the Araucanos), and the author follows up with a seven-page appendix offering more in-depth information on their culture and history. The black-and-white woodcut illustrations feature powerful and dynamic figures. A great choice for classrooms and social studies units.
