Fourth printing. Ink stamp on blurb page, pages very faintly toned. 1973 Mass Market Paperback. 318 pp. An original collection of wonderful stories about men and animals and gods, about super-natural events and everyday happenings, of love, hate, jealousy, trickery, and magic. Long the special preserve of anthropologists, ethnologists, and folklorists, many intriguing rales and myths were not readily available. In this edition the general reader can meet the people of various African tribes as they attempt to explain a baffling and often hostile universe and to deal with problems basic to all human beings.
