For generations the Tharu farmers of the village of Narayanpur, Nepal, have passed down their version of the Mahabharata through song and dance by word of mouth. For the first time, 14 of their songs are translated into English, accompanied by Tharu folk art illustrations, and published in book form. The songs highlight the story of the conflict between the five Pandava brothers and their cousins, the 100 Kauravas.
