The Emerald Lizard

(1999)
A collection of stories by

 
 
For the past three decades, Pleasant DeSpain has explored Latin America - its people, customs, cultures, and especially the myths and legends. The 15 tales in this collection are full of compassionate souls, tricks and humor, explanations of nature and geography - and as always, memorable characters and places. Mario Lamo-Jimenez's Spanish translation that accompanies the English version reverberates with the rich, vibrant quality that has become the bench mark for the best stories from Latin America.
