About this product
- DescriptionLong before the emergence of the printed word, human beings gathered to hear stories. These tales, carried in the head of the storyteller, ensured that a community remembered its history and its beliefs. Now our stories come from a range of sources, but there is still something magical about the spoken word. In this collection of stories and thoughts, Dan Yashinsky shares gems from his treasure trove of material. We travel from the neonatal ICU at Torontos Hospital for Sick Children to the realm of the Blue Djinn, from a mythical forest path to a British Columbia beach, but everywhere we go we are accompanied by Yashinskys gentle, quizzical, sometimes bawdy, and always entertaining voice.
