Lore of the Ghost Ship: Folktale
FOLK TALE of the GHOST SHIP set on the Chilean Archipelago of Chiloe story draws on local folk-lore and tradition to create a magical realistic fable filled with colour, action and human depth. Aimed at a readership of 12 to teens or to people of all ages: insights into a fascinating culture and way of life, vivid, believable characters and a tale told with passion and verve. The story follows Pancho, a teenage boy, as he tries to come to terms with and understand his mother’s sudden disappearance. One of the ways he does this is to ask his uncle Mateo, who is well versed in the myhology of the island. Mateo’s narration of the tale is central to the plot, and it is on the basis of this story-telling that Pancho’s final resolution occurs.
