Synopsis: The twenty-three stories here are an appetizing sampler of the over-10,000 recorded Hungarian folktales collected over the years. Sandwiched between traditional openings and closings are tales full of nimble cleverness. The Hungarian zest for life and courage to tackle even seven-headed dragons is evident throughout.
The cradle of these folktales is the basin of the Carpathian Mountains. They contain historical figures such as King Matthias, and legends about the founding of Hungary and early Mongol raids. Turkish influences from the Ottoman Empire, Gypsy stories, and motifs familiar from many other countries play into the tales as well, reflecting Hungary's geographical position as a meeting and fighting place in East Central Europe.
The author has supplied an introduction and comments to inform each tale with background about Hungary and Hungarians.
