Lands Below the Winds Series
The Lands Below the Winds is a series of folktales from Southeast Asia.
The Lands below the Winds was the name given by the ancient Arabians and Persians for the countries of Southeast Asia which lay below the typhoon belt. Other names were Suvarnabhumi, Sovannah Phoum, Suvarnadvipa (Golden Islands) offered by the Indians, Nanyang (South Seas) by the Chinese and Nanyo by the Japanese. The Lands below the Winds was the gateway to the Spice Islands, an area fought over and even today, integral to world trade and commerce.
Malaya – Land of Eternal Summer also known as the Golden Chersonese, ancient Melaka, Bumi Kenyalang (Sarawak - Land of the Hornbills - the messengers to the gods) and even the fabled Temasek, all had reputations beyond their borders. Here then, are some of their legends and mythology.
Folktales from Southeast Asia with a strong emphasis on girls who saved their people. All books contain illustrations, notes, and a glossary.
Books in the series:
The Girl Who Became a Goddess (Folktales from Singapore, Malaysia and China.)
The Girl Sudan Painted like a Gold Ring (Folktales from the Sea Dyaks of Sarawak, Borneo.)
