Fairy tales and Folklore

Vintage e-books

As much as I have enjoyed the glorious collections of tales found within Lang’s incomparable Fairy Books, I have a particular soft spot for tales that are collected by culture, so that is mostly what I have shared here.  The exquisite illustrations within most of these books will make them worth your while, but the cultural comprehension that can develop from learning the legends of a people should not be underestimated.  Enjoy!
