Folk Tales Every Child Should Know by MABIE, Hamilton Wright
 
We have always loved stories. people have always entertained each other by telling tales around the campfire; traveling storytellers were huge crowd-pullers. Many of these stories were passed down through the generations, largely unchanged. "The stories made by the people, and told before evening fires, or in public places and at the gates of inns in the Orient, belong to the ages when books were few and knowledge limited, or to people whose fancy was not hampered by familiarity with or care ...

West African Folk Tales by BARKER, William H.
 
A collection of folk tales mostly centred around Anansi. In West African lore Anansi is known as a trickster god, and is often depicted as either a spider, a human or a combination of both.

Most stories are told with wry humor and often shocking irreverence for the expected fairy tale turn out. This is NOT a book for children, but one for ...
