Catarina the Wise and Other Wondrous Sicilian Folk and Fairy Tales
Born to a poor family of sailors in Palermo, Giuseppe Pitre would go on to serve with Garibaldi, become a traveling country doctor, and gather one of the most vast collections of folk and fairy tales of the nineteenth century. But while his work as a folklorist rivaled that of the Brothers Grimm, Pitre remains a relative unknown. Catarina the Wise highlights some of the most delectable stories at the heart of his collection. Featuring new, original illustrations, this book is a beautiful, charming treasure for any fan of story, storytelling, and heroines and heroes living happily ever after sometimes.
