The Grimms Tales as you have never experienced them before – complete, accurate, and authentic - exactly as the Grimms wrote them 200 years ago. A completely new, cover-to-cover translation... More > with extensive notes and commentary for the 200th anniversary translated in a new style that preserves the original texts in a way that has never been done before.

This slaughter consumed half of her own family, who had survived centuries before that as chattel, only to become vermin. That side of Leslie’s family had lost everything -- their culture, identity, history, their self-respect and their self-esteem. Only one thing remained, the last thing to go when all else was lost . . .< Less
