Cuentos de la selva by Horacio Quiroga - Summary
These four short stories focus on the shortcomings and virtues of the people and animals which feature in them. Set in a thriving area of wildlife between the south of Brazil, the east of Paraguay and north-east Argentina, the stories give life to some enticing and fascinating adventures, and illustrate how people and animals can live together peacefully.
Los protagonistas de estos cuentos son animales y hombres, con sus defectos y virtudes. Inmersos en la riquísima y cálida naturaleza de la Selva Misionera, los animales de estas historias piensan, se ríen, lloran, envidian, casi como si fueran seres humanos. Son cuentos entretenidos que nos dan ejemplos de pacífica convivencia entre el hombre y la naturaleza.
