FROM THE PUBLISHER
The vibrant tradition of African folktales-an oral heritage that predates Ovid and Aesop-is long and varied, but to date it has been largely overlooked in the West. Aware of this gap, Nelson Mandela selected thirty-two stories, many of them translated from their original tongues, to show the seminal role of African folklore in world literature. We meet tricksters from Zulu folklore; we hear the voices of the scheming hyena and learn from a Khoi fable how animals acquired their tails and horns. These fables present a veritable bible of stories "universal in their portrayal of humanity, beasts and the mystical." Winner of the NAACP Image Award.

Author Biography: Nelson Mandela, now eighty-six years old, lives in Johannesburg and was South Africa's first democratically elected president.
