This comprehensive collection introduces readers to universal fairy-tale figures and such uniquely Russian characters such as Koshchey the Deathless, Baba Yaga, the Swan Maiden, and the glorious Firebird. The more than 175 tales culled from a landmark multi-volume collection by the outstanding Russian ethnographer Aleksandr Afanas’ev reveal a rich, robust world of the imagination.
