Publisher's Summary

From animal fables to mysterious forces residing in the landscape, this collection demonstrates the wealth and variety of African folk tales, and the particular magic of Africa's spiritual roots: a sense of unity with the environment.

Simple, surprising, cruel and humorous, these beautifully rendered tales show McCall Smith's renowned story-telling skills and his love of Africa, remaining as fresh and vital as in the original idiom.

"A collection of charm and tenderness." (Daily Telegraph)
"Wholesome, engaging and highly rewarding." (Glasgow Herald)
