South African Folk Tales by James A. Honey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book was especially republished to raise funds for the Westville Boys High Scholarship fund, where gifted but underprivileged South Africans are given a chance of first class high school education. It is with great thanks to James A. Honey that this volume was ever compiled. I remember as a child attending Infant and Junior School at Westville in South Africa during the 1960's and being told some of these stories in class. In this volume you will find 44 uniquely South African tales. Stories of The Lost Message, The Monkey's Fiddle, The Leopard, The Ram, And The Jackal, The Lion, The Jackal, And The Man, Tink-Tinkje, The Lioness And The Ostrich, Crocodile's Treason, The White Man And Snake, Tortoise Hunting Ostriches, The Judgment Of Baboon, When Lion Could Fly, The Origin Of Death and more. It is doubtful that Westville Infant School or Westville Junior school (now Westville Junior Primary and Westville Senior Primary) still have an original volume and it is unknown if these stories are still told in schools around South Africa. It is therefore only fitting that this unique volume of South African Folk Tales be resurrected and brought back to life almost a century after they were first published so that they can benefit those South African children who, for a myriad of reasons, would not normally receive a full education.
