Following the Breadcrumbs V: Stor e Telling January February 2003

Hansel and Gretel
Anton Pieck, 1903
I am traveling back in time and updating all of my Stor e Telling columns for Storytelling Magazine since 2002 I have checked all of the links, updated those that have new URL's and deleted others that have found their way to the Internet graveyard. Through the summer and beyond I will continue to update the columns and post them on my blog until all of the breadcrumbs lead to the end of 2006. At the end of the blog you will find links to the columns from 2007 – 2013.

I continue to write for Storytelling Magazine but will not be adding current columns until the following year. If you want immediate access to the newest websites, consider becoming a member of the National Storytelling Network. Please feel free to comment on the blog and let me know if you find this useful. 

African Folktales
Eight unique folktales from the Dark Continent and the home page offers an array of elementary resources.

Arthur’s Classic Novels
Books of fairytales ripe for the reading, and when you are done with Lang, Ashliman, Baum and Kipling, you will find the literary works of Twain, Tolstoy, Dickens, Dean, Defoe and more. A literary feast for the serious bibliophile!

Borneo Legends and Myths
Would you like to know the _Origin of Rice_ or meet _The Girl Who Longed to see the Moon_? Then stop off in Borneo and read these and other legends and myths of this magical land.

The Moonlit Road
Read ghost stories and strange folktales of the American South; it’s never too late to get ready for next Halloween.

North by Northwest
Reminiscent of the Alfred Hitchcock movie this site is worthy of the same mystique librarians at the Vancouver Library will take on the “Case of the Forgotten Book.” Let them unearth that childhood story you can only recall in bits and pieces.

Norwegian Folk Tales
Eighty folktales to warm our hearts through the winter.

Each issue of this award winning journal offers a central theme devoted to the “exploration of the quest for meaning as it is expressed in the world’s myths, symbols, and religious traditions.”

Storytelling Arts of Indiana
Teaching Guides, games, activities and resources from such quality tellers as Heather Forest, Doug Lipman, Rex Ellis, Doug Elliott, Janice Harrington and Ed Stivender. You can’t go wrong taking advice from this group!
