    Franz Xaver von Schönwerth traversed Northern Bavaria to record fairy tales, gaining the admiration of even the Brothers Grimm. Most of Schönwerth's work was lost until a few years ago. Now, for the first time, Schönwerth's lost fairy tales are available in English. Violent, dark, and full of action, and upending the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes, these more than 70 stories bring us closer than ever to the unadorned oral tradition in which fairy tales are rooted, revolutionizing our understanding of a hallowed genre.

    Märchenerzählen ist eine hohe Kunst - und Erika Eichenseer beherrscht sie wie kaum eine Zweite. In ihrer freien Nacherzählung erwachen die schönsten Märchen aus der Sammlung von Franz Xaver von Schönwerth (1810-1886) zu neuem Leben. Zauberhaft, naturnah, lustig und frisch berichten die alten Märchen und Mythen von mutigen Abenteurern, von fantastischen Wesen und ganz irdischen Schreckgestalten, aber auch von der Kultur eines vergangenen Bayern.
