McPherson. Native Fairy Tales of South Africa

Today's free book is Native Fairy Tales of South Africa by Ethel L. McPherson. This is a collection of stories from the Zulu and Sesuto (Sotho) peoples of South Africa; specifically, they are reworkings of stories you can find in Callaway's Nursery Tales, Traditions, and Histories of the Zulus and Jacottet's The Treasury of Basuto Lore.

For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at the Baldwin Project and Hathi Trust.

The illustrations are by Helen Jacobs, and I have made a Flickr collection.
