THE WATER OF LIFE (complete story)



A very Mexican variant of the tale best known as Grimms' Godfather Death. We got it from Joseph Sobol, years ago. He collected it, with other stories, as an artist in residence in ESL classes of Chicago high schools. He now heads up the masters' program in storytelling at ETSU in Jonesborough. The stories he collected and his notes on using folklore in ESL are in a fine book.
