South African
Folklore

 

  The stories below are from a South African Folk Tales by James A. Honey M.D. published in 1910 by the Baker and Taylor Company in New York. The book was digitized in 2007 and may be reproduced for non-commercial purposes.

As the book was printed way back in 1910, the stories are all more than 100 years old as as such as true to the original stories as told in those days as one can get. I would guess that prior to the publishing of the book, very few if any of these stories had ever been written down, making them that more original and unique.
