Description: Out of the deep forest and the broad savannah, from the campsites, kraals, and villages of over 40 tribes come 95 tales of Black Africa. The Africa of our storytellers is an immense area, three times the landmass of the continental United States. In the face of such diversity, the distinguished American folklorist Roger Abrahams has selected tales that represent widely observable continuities found within the land south of the Sahara Desert.

Drawing on sources that range from the notes of the earliest missionaries to the most recent works of anthropologists and ethnographers, Abrahams, renders nearly one hundred stories in a voice reverberating with the rhythm of the drum, revealing to us these exotic folktales' universal concerns while evoking their ritual performance of the African world.
