A cornerstone of Chinese popular culture, the legend of the White Snake--the admirable demon who loves her victim--has been continually rewritten, reinterpreted, and readapted for over five hundred years. The Precious Scroll of Thunder Peak was one of the most popular nineteenth-century versions of the legend. In bringing together translations of the Scroll, four anonymous youth books, and other texts related to the development of the White Snake legend, this volume opens a window into the richness and variety of premodern Chinese popular literature. It also illustrates the ways in which traditional and modern Chinese societies have treated a host of vital cultural issues, including the role of women in society, perceptions of sexuality, and folk religion. Wilt L. Idema's Introduction traces the evolution of the legend and places the translated texts in the history of Chinese popular literature and culture. Annotations explaining terms and references that may be unfamiliar to Western readers, a glossary, and a thorough bibliography further enhance the value of this book for both scholars and students.

Three travelers must bring a terrifying prophecy to the distant tribes of the world in the first book of this alternate Bronze Age fantasy series. The nomadic tribe Whisperers of the Gods have seen the vision. The gods are preparing to send a world-destroying flood to punish those who have corrupted and forgotten the old ways. Three are chosen—Tersh, Kareth, and Sha’di—to go out and deliver a message to the world: The gods must be appeased before it’s too late. Leaving her children behind, Tersh must travel to the mountain kingdom of Matawe. She must also care for Kareth, who has been told since birth that he is destined for greatness, and whose overconfidence often leads him into danger. Meanwhile, Sha’di ventures off alone to find the people of the jungle, the Petzuhallpa. And while the jungle seems like a paradise, Sha’di soon discovers the dark rituals practiced within. Guided by visions, these adventurers must use their wits to survive in these strange new lands that show little interest in their warnings.
