About River Stories

…to the bend in the river, where Caribbean folklore collects in a pool teaming with crawfish and wabeen, and fallen bamboos balance on the mossy rocks.

I am Lisa Levi, author of River Stories. I was born and raised in Trinidad, from Dominican and Grenadian parentage and I started River Stories because of my interest in Caribbean folklore and my love of folktales.

For me, the folklore of the Caribbean, like the folklore of any peoples, reflects the true Caribbean, the unique spirit and truth of Caribbean people wherever they live.

Join me and explore the spirit and truth of Papa Bwa, Mama Glo, La Jabless, Dwens and all the other folk.
