Stories from Africa, Australia, and N. America among others. Most presented by Mrs. Lang, "who does not give them exactly as they are told by all sorts of outlandish natives, but makes them up in the hope white people will like them, skipping the pieces which they will not like." Makes one curious about the originals!
