African Genesis

Folk Tales and Myths of Africa

By Frobenius, Leo & Fox, Douglas M.

Publishers Summary:
Recorded in the early 20th century by an eminent anthropologist, these entertaining tales reflect the geographic and cultural backgrounds of their narrators. They range from Kabyl creation legends of the Berbers to ballads of the southern Sahara and the humorously exaggerated Improbable Tales from Sudan. Enhanced by illustrations adapted from prehistoric rock paintings, and by portraits of 20th-century Africans, this volume is of immense value to students of African culture as well as readers of folklore and mythology. 4 maps. 15 b/w illus. 6 photos.
