This remarkable collection takes us more deeply into the tradition of folklore than those which are made on the Grimm principle of 'pleasing tales for the nursery'. It is entertaining and amusing, but nothing has been sacrificed to the latter element, nor are the narrators of the tales made more important than the subject. Illustrated.

From the Back Cover:

Also known as Voodoo Tales, As Told Among the Negroes of the Southwest, this remarkable 1893 work is an extraordinary source for the combined Negro and Indian folklore of pre Civil War Missouri, in which African Voodoo concepts mixed with Native American stories to produce a mythology uniquely of this time and place. Read the tales of:

* The Bee-King and the Aunties * Concerning a Goose, a Bluebird, and Other Fowls of the Air * The "Fuss" Between Woodpecker and Blue Jay * How Woodpecker Took a Boy to Raise and Was Disgusted With the Job * How the Skunk Became the Terror of All Living Creatures * and many more.

Praised by renowned 19th-century folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland in his introduction as a "very valuable and curious book," this delightful work, complete with the original illustrations, will charm and entertain anyone interested in global mythology.

About the Author:

American folklorist MARY ALICIA OWEN (1858-1935) also wrote Folk-lore of the Musquakie Indians of North America (1904) and Sacred Council Hills: A Folk-lore Drama (1909).
