The Power of Story

The Power of Story

by Laura Simms

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Simms offers enthusiastic renderings of tales involving women and animals that were gleaned from assorted cultures; several of the outings have Native American origins. Simms, who includes a few creation myths, intersperses these stories with accounts of her experiences as a professional storyteller. Evocative music by Steve Gorn on several instruments supports Simms's performance. Not all the mostly brief tales are of equal interest, and Simms occasionally interjects bursts of exuberance that might be effective before live audiences but can be jarring on audio. This should appeal to those interested in international folklore.—Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr. Lib.
