An Evening in Guanima

A Treasury of Folktales from The Bahamas

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In folk stories, magic drums, ghosts, obedient and disobedient children, heroes, tricksters and birds that assume human form hold sway in a world where poetic justice always brings about a satisfactory ending. This is the stuff of An Evening in Guanima.

Customer Reviews

Great book!

I love this book. I really appreciated the introduction in the origin section that prefaced the stories, it provided me with a ton of information that I didn’t know before. The stories in this book are rich with wisdom and truth that everyone should learn growing up. They’re short enough to be bedtime stories but jam packed with valuable lessons and entertaining content. Parents, grandparents, and kiddos alike will want to read these stories. It will make parents feel like they’re educating their children about life, but disguising it in a story. There’s also a large selection of stories that kids can pick their favorites from, which is a great feature of any storybook. I will definitely be keeping this collection to read to my children when I have them someday and will be recommending it to family and friends!
