epub The Blue Jackal

Book description

This is a most splendid, and sadly underrated book by the marvelous Marcia Brown.In it, she retells the classic tale known throughout the Indian sub-continent, of a poor and hungry jackal who, desperate for food, enters a village.There he is chased by vicious dogs and in an effort to elude his pursuers, dives into a vat of indigo dye, turning him a bright blue.From there, his adventures begin.

Ms. Browns' woodcut illustrations are exceptionally vibrant, colorful and full of rich detail.This really is quite an exquisite book.The last page is a bit interesting, as it concludes the story on a more philosophical lyrical note than the rest of the story.

"What is my place?My time?My friends?
Expenditure or dividends?
And what am I?And what my power?
So one must ponder hour by hour."

It is a shame that this book has apparently been out of print since 1977.Hopefully it will continue to be published again for future generations to enjoy.
