Spain has long had a tradition for wonderful stories - of bold knights and beautiful princesses; of castles in the clouds; magical kings and mystical Moors. For centuries the great majority of the Spanish people could neither read nor write. So these stories, so well-worn in the telling, have become full of the native wit, humanity and humour of ordinary men and women. Which of course gives them a character and magic of their very own. The Jar of Gold; Blanca the Proud; The Fisherman and the Moor; The Castle of No Return; The Sunbeam Sprites; Simple John; The Proud King of Leon; The Princes and the Maiden.
