Publisher's Summary

Si ve a una mujer cubierta en el bosque, huya! Los campesinos y leñadores que la han visto, dicen que es una señora corpulenta, elegante, vestida de hojas frescas y musgo verde, con un sombrero cubierto de hojas y plumas verdes. No se le puede apreciar el rostro porque el sombrero la opaca. Hay mucha gente que conoce sus gritos o bramidos en noches oscuras y de tempestad peligrosa. Vive en sitios enmarañados, con árboles frondosos, alejada del ruido de la civilización y en los bosques cálidos, con animales dañinos. Los campesinos cuentan que cuando la Madremonte se baña en las cabeceras de los ríos, estos se enturbian y se desbordan, causan inundaciones, borrascas fuertes, que ocasionan daños espantosos. Castiga a los que invaden sus terrenos y pelean por linderos; a los perjuros, a los perversos, a los esposos infieles y a los vagabundos.If you see a covered woman in the forest, run! The peasants and woodcutters, who have seen her, say that she is a burly, elegant lady, dressed in fresh leaves and green moss, with a hat covered by leaves and green feathers. It's not possible to distinguish her face, because it is darkened by her hat. Many people also recognize her shouts or bellows in dark nights and in dangerous weather. She lives in entangled places, with leafy trees, away from the noise of civilization in hot forests with harmful animals. The peasants say that when the Madremonte bathes in the head-boards of the rivers, they become muddy and overflow, causing floods and strong tempests that cause frightful damage. She protects her boundaries and punishes those who invade her lands: the perjured, the perverse, the unfaithful spouses and the vagabonds. Note: This is audiobook is in Spanish.
