Susumaton: Oral Narratives of Leyte brings the narrative practice from the mouths of the storykeepers straight into print. The stories in this book are direct transcripts, presented exactly as they were told, to enable the reader to echo the storyteller's voice as he reads. The susumaton is part of the Filipino's invisible cultural heritage. They are reflections of the people's view of the world, social values and relationships, history, politics, memory, and show the various ways in which the imagination brings experience into manageable human terms. The book is both document and tribute to the homegrown storytellers of the nation, and of the Waray storytellers speaking in their own tongue.
