Format: Paperback
This short story collection is a fantastic example of how suspense and horror can be built within a matter of a few pages. Ground breaking when first published as it took the usual man competing against nature and winning and turns it on it's head. Worth learning Spanish for!

This is a lovely book- reminds me a bit of the Rudyard Kipling stories, but these ones are a little less on the weird side! Great for intermediate/ advanced Spanish learners, stories are short with heaps of vocab and font is very easy to read. Recommend!

bilingual teacher's saving grace 2 Oct. 2000
By Suzanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What can a bilingual teacher do when s/he notices that students look bored during read aloud? If they are in grades 2 or above, whip out Cuentos de la selva, a collection of stories about animals in the jungles of South America. Start with "El loro pelado". That will captivate them completely. After that, they will enjoy all other stories. Any student with a 5th grade reading level can read and enjoy the stories independently. I would like to thank Amazon.com for finding this book for me. I tried several other publishers, and they were unable to find me this gem.

Excellent book. It is NOT the collection of short stories "Cuentos de la Selva" originally published, but a selection of stories 1 July 2009
By R. Lublinerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The short stories by Horacio Quiroga have had a deep impact on me as I was a kid. The stories are engaging, sharp and crude. It is always a joy to re read them.

BEWARE: This edition is NOT the original one titled "Cuentos de la Selva", which has 8 great magical stories that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. The original one has the following stories: LA TORTUGA GIGANTE, LAS MEDIAS DE LOS FLAMENCOS, EL LORO PELADO, LA GUERRA DE LOS YACARES, LA GAMA CIEGA, HISTORIA DE DOS CACHORROS DE COATÍ Y DOS CACHORROS DE HOMBRE, EL PASO DE YABEBIRÍ and LA ABEJA HARAGANA.

The edition that is sold here in Amazon edited by Diferencias has only 3 of these stories, and then some of stories from CUENTOS DE AMOR, LOCURA Y MUERTE, also a great collection of short stories however not very appropriate for young children.

Also you may want to search on the internet (portalcoquimbo.cl) and download the text as it has fallen into the public domain already.

Quiroga fue talentoso 4 Feb. 2013
By Lumie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Una serie de cuentos entretenidos y muy "Quiroguianos". Fácil de leer y una buena opción para aquellos que gustan leer en español o los que gustan relatos cortos. Recomendado para lectores jóvenes (es un estilo simple)

A series of short stories by Uruguayan writer, Horacio Quiroga. Very interesting style and recommended to those who enjoy short narrative, and/or readings in Spanish. Probably a good alternative for younger readers.
