These delightful festival folktales - from minority groups of Southwest China - Dai, Xizang, Miao and Hani - will fascinate readers of all ages. For three days in mid-April, the Dai of southern Yunnan race dragon boats, drench each other with water, and tell how brave Nan Zhongbu slayed her husband, the Demon King. In early spring, Miao men and women dance to the music of bamboo flutes and wear white feathers in their hats, a symbol of the true love celebrated in the tale of Ahwong and Maosa.
