Legends and Myths from Latin America


Los pájaros no tienen fronteras: Leyendas y mitos de América Latina 
(Birds Have No Borders: Legends and Myths from Latin America)
Edna Iturralde
Illustrated by Andrezzinho


Forty myths and legends make up this magical book. Edna Iturralde takes us on a tour through the Latin American countries and their rich oral tradition, with their heroes and exciting stories. In addition to well-known myths and legends like that of La Llorona from Mexico, or the Alligator Man from Colombia, you will find lesser-known myths that are just as moving… and sometimes even hair-raising!
