In"The Lady of Moscow,"the fair maiden, Princess Peerless, is imprisoned in her castle by a terrible demon who seeks her for his bride. But this is not merely a story of mythical castles and warfare; for our Princess represents part of Russia's important past, of oppression and flailing energy beneath the heavy hand of the Tartar rule. Ultimately, the reader will discover whether or not the demon's spell is broken by a knight wielding an invisible club by fearless patriotism that both unites the country-folk and promotes the rising seat of government in Moscow.
Each and every single story is complemented with a captioned illustration, plus a detailed introduction which puts the Russian historic events that frame this collection into context. This really is really a book to be enjoyed by a diversified audience; from youngsters and young adults, to educators and those simply enthusiastic about classic Russian folklore. Here is an ideal gift, a understanding tool, and a perfect addition to any Russian literature collection.
