"Transcribed as closely 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) "...only Quilaqueo can tell these stories in the authentic and meaningful way that a Mapuche is able to do." (Dr. Nancy Bird-Soto University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee)"From the Publisher:
Narrated by Carlos Quilaqueo, a native Mapuche, this text is the most complete collection and first direct transcription of Mapuche oral histories, myths, and legends. This book presents a collection of stories, myths and legends of the Laguna Blanca in Neuquen, Argentina. The storyteller, Carlos Quilaqueo, a Mapuche inhabitant of the region, shares his knowledge of the plants, animals, places, the history and the imaginary shared and passed orally from his ancestors to him and his contemporaries. The stories were compared to other Mapuche and Tehuelche stories principally, and analyzed for symbolic meaning.
