South African Folk Tales (1910)
Folk Tales and Folklore from the Rainbow Nation of South Africa
It is with great thanks to James A. Honey that this volume was ever compiled. So popular was this volume that these tales were still being told in schools up and until the 1970's.
In this volume you will find 44 uniquely South African tales. Stories of The Lost Message, The Monkey's Fiddle, The Leopard, The Ram, And The Jackal, The Lion, The Jackal, And The Man, Tink-Tinkje, The Lioness And The Ostrich, Crocodile's Treason, The White Man And Snake, Tortoise Hunting Ostriches, The Judgment Of Baboon, When Lion Could Fly, The Origin Of Death and many more.
Raising funds for education
It is therefore fitting that this unique volume of South African Folk Tales be resurrected and brought back to life almost a century after they were first published so that they can benefit those South African children who, for a myriad of reasons, would not normally receive a full education.
This book was especially republished to raise funds for the Westville Boys High Scholarship fund, where gifted but underprivileged South Africans are given a chance of first class high school education.
