I read this book way back when I was young and loved it to bits. It tells funky stories of animals and their meetings with other animals and men.
I love re-reading it now and again. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 950581075X, Paperback)

El escritor uruguayo Horacio Quiroga (1879-1937), uno de los grandes clasicos latinoamericanos, presenta en Cuentos de la selva, con imaginacion y fantasia, una selva extraordinaria, dentro de un mundo ideal y magico. Animales y hombres unidos en las experiencias de vivir dentro de una region aislada ofrecen el ejemplo de una nueva dimension de amistad, lealtad, agradecimiento y respeto mutuo. Sin embargo, en la selva encontramos el reverso de la moneda: pescadores que matan peces con dinamita, hombres armados que siembran destruccion a su paso, tigres que atacan con crueldad. En Cuentos de la selva Quiroga exalta la vida en armonia, la solidaridad, el trabajo creativo. Asi, finalmente, el mundo dejara de ser una selva.
