Description About the author
 
Tales of the Golden Corpse is the first complete English version of the famous Tibetan folk tales told to a boy who has killed seven sorcerers in the defense of his Master. The boy must redeem himself by carrying a talking corpse full of wondrous tales on a long journey, without himself speaking a word. These 25 tales of intrigue and magic provide the reader with a window through which to view ancient Tibetan culture. Within them you will encounter heroes and villains, fearsome witches, murderous demons and clever tricksters with a uniquely Tibetan humor. Songs, riddles, jokes, and sayings make the stories come alive as they unfold against the background of everyday Tibet - its farmers and nomads, kings and magical beings.

Tales of the Golden Corpse: Tibetan Folk Tales, Sandra Benson, Interlink Publishing, Paperback, 2006, 229 Pages, $15.00.
