The Kalevala Tales of Magic and Adventure by Kirsti Makinen

I meet a lot of people on the internet.  I often use it for research and when I was trying to find my mother-in-law's brown bread recipe (she didn't use a recipe and didn't want to share it anyway), I talked to the Finnish Embassy and asked them if they could help me find one.  They did. When they noticed I sold books, they asked if I had read the Kalevala yet.  It's a Finnish fairy tale that is almost mythological.  I hadn't then, but this book came in with the books I was reviewing for Foreword Magazine.  It's an amazing story and the illustrations are fantastic.
