Philippine Myths, Legends, and Folktales

The folklore material put together in this book is from all over the Philippines. Some are from the Ilocos region and the Cordilleras in the Christian and pagan north. Many are from the Christian provinces in the rest of Luzon and the Visayan Islands. The others are from Mindanao and the Sulu group in the pagan and Muslim South. 

Represented here are the ethnic groups of the plains and coastal areas, of the foothills and mountains, of the swamps and rain forests. They were originally told in Bikol, Bontok, Ifugao, Iloko, Kalinga, Maranao, Pampango, Tagalog, Tausug, Tinguian, Visayan, and other Philippine vernaculars.
