    1. A well-known and -loved Indian tale adapted from The Mahabharata, which is explained in a historical note from the author as India’s greatest national epic, Savitri tells of a princess who selects a worthy and virtuous man to marry, despite a prophesy that he will die in a year. When that day comes, Savitri matches wits with Yama, the god of death, to restore her father-in-law’s sight and kingdom, ensure more children for her father, and ultimately return her husband’s life and soul.

    2. Beautiful illustrations. The story line is tight. Great addition to our study of Ancient India in year 1/first grade.



    3. I learned that Yama is the god of death and Savitri is the goddess of the sun. I liked it so much because the princess in the book is actually very witting, and it's hard to find a story like this where the princess saves the prince instead of the classic history thing where the prince saved the princess.


    4. Age: 6-10 yearsThe artwork's not the best but the story consists of dedication and perseverance against the odds to save a loved one.


    5. We checked this out from the library to go along w/ our study of Medieval India. Very well told and beautiful illustrations.



    6. An Indian tale about a woman named Savitri who tries to trick Yama the God of death into giving her husband back his life.K-5


    7. This is a tale found in The Mahabharata, which is like the Old Testament for Hindus. It is a wonderful enthralling story and my girls asked for it over and over.
