The Best of African Folklore (Paperback, 4th Revised Edition): Phyllis Savory The Best of African Folklore (Paperback, 4th Revised Edition)

R160 R128 Discovery Miles 1 280 Save R32 (20%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

Africa has a wonderfully rich store of folk tales that have been passed down from one generation to the next. There are stories about how the world came into being, stories that tell of the relati onships between human beings and between man and his environment, and of the lessons to be learned from everyday experience. The tales are like the fairy tales told all over the world, but they have a strong African flavour that is as real as the smell of rain on hot earth.

Now in a revised format with an updated cover, The Best of African Folklore takes the reader into an enchanted world where animals can talk and humans are often changed into diff erent forms, where magic is commonplace and reality is turned delightf ully on its head.

Despite numerous setbacks, things usually turn out all right in the end. Wicked and greedy people (and animals) come off worst and the good receive their just rewards. The gods are stern but fair, and every story has a moral for those who are wise enough to see it.
