It is with excellent thanks to James A. Honey that will this volume was ever compiled. We remember as a child attending Baby and Junior School at Westville, within KwaZulu-Natal, S. africa during the 1950's and being told some of these types of stories in class. In this quantity you will find 44 uniquely Southern African tales. Stories from the Dropped Message, The Monkey's Fiddle, The Leopard, The Ram, And The Jackal, The particular Lion, The Jackal, And The Guy, Tink-Tinkje, The Lioness And The Ostrich, Crocodile's Treason, The White Man Plus Snake, Tortoise Hunting Ostriches, The View Of Baboon, When Lion Could Take flight, The Origin Of Death and a lot more. Indeed I have even used the few in my forthcoming novel, the sequel to Legend of the Final Vikings - Taklamakan, which gives aside the continent which it is primarily set...... As South Africa, like the particular majority of nations, becomes less pastoral and more urbanised, it is dubious that Westville Infant School or Westville Junior school (now Westville Junior Main and Westville Senior Primary) still offers an original volume and it will be unknown if these stories are nevertheless told in schools around South The african continent. It would be a pity in case they were not, for this will be an integral section of the culture of Southern Africa. It is therefore only fitted that this unique volume of Southern African Folk Tales be resurrected plus brought back to our lives nearly a century after they were 1st published so that they can advantage those South African children who, regarding a myriad of reasons, would not really normally receive a full education. This particular book was especially republished to increase funds for the Westville Boys Higher Scholarship fund, where gifted but underprivileged South Africans are given the opportunity of obtaining a first class higher school education.
