From animal fables to mysterious forces residing in the landscape, this collection demonstrates the wealth and variety of African folk tales, and the particular magic of Africa's spiritual roots: a sense of unity with the environment.Simple, surprising, cruel and humorous, these beautifully rendered tales show McCall Smith's renowned story-telling skills and his love of Africa, remaining as fresh and vital as in the original idiom.
