Trying to locate a book of forest tales...
This is a great site!

When I grew up in India (live in beautiful Boston now) in the 80s, I owned many books (folk tales) from Eastern Europe: Latvian, Lithuanian, Russian, Ukrainian, etc.

I was particularly fond of one book. It was a collection of tales to do with forests and animals. It was a softcover (about the same length and width as an Asterix book) and was kind of dark green all over. Every two pages or so in it had a picture but it was mostly text. All the stories may have been by the same author or authors but I am not sure.

It would be nice if someone can provide me some pointers as to the identity of this book!

Thank you!

The Forest in Folklore and Mythology
There is a book called The Forest in Folklore and Mythology by Alexander Porteous available at Dover Books- In fact, it's on sale this month. It sounds almost like what you are looking for- check it out and see. It is green all over.....Winnie

Re: The Forest in Folklore and Mythology
Hey thanks!! That wasn't the book though :( The book I am looking for contains only stories and I remember the cover to be different (although I can't exactly describe what).

But I have contacted a friend in India. She is going to go through our family's belongings and let me know if she can find those books. Hopefully she will and I can post the results here...

Re: The Forest in Folklore and Mythology
It was in English. But I am sure that it was translated from various Eastern European languages (and primarily Russian).
