Inhaltsangabe: This volume presents literary fables that share an intense delight in the natural world, cautionary tales to prose peoms, and social satire to unmistakable tragedy. It is aimed a adults and children alike.

About the Author: Kenji Miyazawa was born in 1896 in Iwate, one of the northernmost prefectures of Japan and a land of heavy snows and barren soil.

During his high-school years, he studied Zen Buddhism, and was to carry a copy of the Lotus Sutra with him for the rest of his life. Around this time, he also began to write his own simple but passionate brand of poetry.

Three years after graduating from an agricultural college, he went to Tokyo with the aim of making writing his profession, but he soon returned to help look after a sick sister. After she died, he took a teaching position in his home town, and though he subsequently made numerous trips to Tokyo in connection with his literary efforts, Iwate remained his home.

There he organized a children's club and held record concerts. He became interested in the cello and the organ, trying to teach himself but eventually taking lessons in both instruments; he also learned Esperanto.

Miyazawa's days were devoted to using his background in agronomy to instruct and help the local farmers, while at night he practiced his music and wrote. When his health failed in 1929, he was bedridden for a year, but he was soon exploring new interests, including mathematics and calligraphy.

He died of a lung infection in 1933.

The translator, John Bester, is one of the foremost translators of Japanese fiction. In 1990 he received the first Noma Translation Award for his English version of a short-story collection by Yukio Mishima entitled Acts of Worship.
