Afro-American Folktales

Afro-American Folktales by Roger D. Abrahams

A collection of folktales, from the West Indies as well as the United States.

A lot of beast tales, including some recognizable variants on fairy tale types-- some fairy tales, not too many. Heavy on trickster tales. Some distinctly bawdy.
