Does anyone know of a good collection of Folklore from backhome? I am looking for one as a Christmas gift.
Suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all.

Folklore & Legends of Trinidad and Tobago by Gerard Besson





Salt and roti: Indian folk tales of the Caribbean by Kenneth Vidia Parmasad

Bought the first one during my last visit home, was hoping for more tales not a history lesson. Is the second any good.
Thanks

Here are some 5 tales that were written by June Lee-Sing, a former resident of Moruga.  You can't buy these but you can print them from this link that was originally posted on the forum over two years ago.
