Read by mlcui

(4.5 stars; 16 reviews)

"No less wonderful and varied are the inhabitants and the phenomena of the Philippines, and a new author, showing rare knowledge of the country and its strange peoples, now gives us a collection of simple yet wonderful stories which bring them before us with dramatic vividness... Strangest, perhaps, of all these possibilities for fiction is the 'anting-anting', at once a mysterious power to protect its possessor and the outward symbol of the protection..." - Summary from the Foreword (3 hr 42 min)
