Fun old folk tales from where I grew up

I've had this book for nearly 25 years and was happy to replace my nearly worn out, out of print copy with a digital one, unfortunately the digital is abridged. The stories are a lot of fun to hear and the narration is really good, but the audio quality isn't the best; sounds like an older recording.
