Overview

The Russian Fairy Book by Nathan Haskell Dole

This book includes seven captivating stories selected from the rich folklore of Mother Russia, featuring wicked witches, nasty stepmothers, lovely maidens, magic spells, and more.
Brimming with colorful characters and miraculous feats, these are time-honored tales with a uniquely Russian tone. Selections include "Vasilisa the Beauty," a story combining elements from "Cinderella" and "Hansel and Gretel;" "The Little Sister and Little Brother," in which an evil witch is deceived by two orphans; along with "The White Duckling," "The Bright-Hawk's Feather," "Ivan and the Gray Wolf," "Marya Morevna," and "The Frog-Queen."
Superbly translated by noted American scholar Nathan Haskell Dole, this is an enchanting book for fairy tale lovers of all ages.
