Summary

A reader for intermediate-level Spanish courses, courses in Composition and Conversation, or Civilization.

Perhaps no other story is as compelling, as universal, or conveys so much about a culture as a legend. Recognizing this, Leyendas del mundo hispano offers 12 legends from Mexico, Colombia, El Salvador, Spain, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Uruguay, Cuba, and the United States. These stories illustrate the blending of cultures (Spanish, Indigenous, Mestizo), the creation of new legends, as well as the evolution of legends. The five National Standards of communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities inform the philosophy and rich pedagogy of the text.
