Cuentos de tierra y eucaliptos

Original title: "Cuentos de tierra y eucaliptos"
Author: Walter Ventosilla

Book review: Through twelve tales, the book "CUENTOS DE TIERRA Y EUCALIPTOS" gives back in poetic prose surroundings, experiences and situations typical of the rural zones in Peru but that could also be the reflection of many other towns in America.  In each short story you get a glimpse of the characters whose lives go from the common to the legendary, framed in a day-to-day life that blends with celebrations and popular traditions. The atmosphere, the natural environment also amuses like another one of the characters showing communion among the men and women of the Andean towns with nature, with its religiousness, myths and beliefs. (By Nellie B.
