Narrated by Carlos Quilaqueo, and meticulously transcribed and analyzed by Perea-Fox and Iriarte, this collection of Mapuche stories is an invaluable resource for Mapuche cultural, literary, and anthropological studies.

Reviews

"Transcribed as close as possible to the original, these stories are of great value to anybody interested in Latin American culture." – Prof. Dennis L. Seager, Oklahoma State University

“…the authors recognize the fact that only Quilaqueo can tell these stories in the authentic and meaningful way that a Mapuche such as himself, with ample knowledge of the people, the geography, and the flora and fauna of the region, is able to do…. ” – Dr. Nancy Bird-Soto, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

“This book will appeal to a broad readership of biologists, anthropologists, and sociologists, as well as those interested mainly in literature and legend.” – Prof. Alice F. Echelle, Oklahoma State University
