Reprint of the first 1904 edition

Classic collection of 32 less familiar folk tales narrated in clear, lively prose. Different enough to capture all imaginations, the tales are drawn from many different cultures: the American Indians, Australian Bushmen, African Kaffirs, and from Persia, Lapland, Brazil, and India.

About the Author

Andrew Lang (1844–1912) was a Scottish poet, novelist, anthropologist, historian, literary critic, and noted collector of folklore and fairy tales. Educated at the prestigious University of St. Andrews and Balliol College, Oxford, Lang became a published poet, editor, and journalist by the time he was thirty-one. He was fascinated by folklore, myths, local legends, and fairy tales throughout his entire life. Lang’s debut work, The Blue Fairy Book, was the first of twenty-five collections of stories for children.
