Philippine Folk-Tales. Author: Bayliss, Clara Kern, 1848-.

Lots of good folk tales from the indigenous and major tribes/peoples of the Philippines. This is a very interesting collection of folk tales from across the islands that give some insight into the origins of their culture. 2 people found this helpful. The folktales are in their original form and have not been "polished" but appear to be direct translations into English. I see this as a valuable book for those wishing to understand the Philippines on deeper levels.

This book is complied from essays by different authors, which gives differing insight into the stories and allows for a broader breadth of subject, but it also means that several tales are repeated, and that some are not as interesting than others.

Many of the stories are typical Eurasian tales as brought to the Philippines by the Spanish (among others). They had regional twists, but weren't very different from tales any Westerner would know.

There were also a number of short and generally macabre folk-tales and myths interspersed through the Westernish ones. The final section of the book had a bunch of unique tales of the sort I'd been expecting, and it had more discussion of the tales (more foot notes, mentions of words in the original language, ect). There was also a section of traditional children's games, which could be fun. All in all there are well over 50 tales in this book of various quality and length.

There is no active Table of Contents, and the end-notes are not linked--making them essentially useless.

Another (and maybe slightly better) book of Philippine Folk-Tales is Philippine Folk Tales by Mabel Cole Cook.

In conjunction with; Lonely Planet Guide to Scuba Diving and Snorkeling the Philippines, Soup Recipes From Filipino Cooking: How To Cook Filipino Food For Soup Lovers, The Philippine Islands, 1493-1898 Volume 11 of 55 1599-1602, this book was another excellent insight to the people and culture of the Phillipines Islands. If you want to 'see' beneath the surface of 'just tourism' when you visit here, then you will want to peruse books such as these!

Kind of odd. Some of the stories didn't make much sense. Stories didn't give much insight into culture either. It might be worth reading if you are interested in the Philippines, but it wasn't one off my favorite book of folk tales.

My wife is from the Philippines, and she enjoyed this book.

Was shocked to find out the publication date: 1916. It was a great read. Enjoy folklore. Most of it seemed to be free of western influence.

I love folk tales and fairy tales, and had not come across a Philippine collection before. I found them fascinating, as they reveal the culture and the differences -- and likenesses -- to folk tales around the world.

After finishing Philippine folk tales, I have a new respect for the culture. I learned a lot about what the people of the Philippines value and worship. The folk tales have illustrations that give a deeper look into how colorful the history of the Philippines is.
I really liked it. It was a little taste of home. Just like my grandma use to tell me when I was a young girl.
