Overview

Written over five centuries ago, these tales have survived over time as storytellers' favorites. In the framework story, Sinbad the Porter envies the luxurious life of Sinbad the Sailor until his gracious host explains how he obtained his wealth: seven voyages of disaster, horror, and adventure that eventually led to his present state of happiness and prosperity. The book presents Sinbad's seven shipwrecks while introducing them to the amazing inhabitants of the islands on which the sailor is inevitably stranded: sea-stallions; the giant Roc and diamond-protecting serpents; Cyclops-like giants; cannibals (and live-burial customs); the Old Man of the Sea with his lethal legs; the generous king of Sarandib; and monsters and the flying "brethren of the demons." In each formulaic tale, Sinbad loses everything, flirts with death, and ends up richer, more generous, and maybe even a bit wiser than before. All of the stories provide numerous opportunities for retelling and embellishing and thus gloriously display the storyteller's craft. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this book.
