About this book

Popular nature writer Gary Ferguson tells sixty wonderful stories from cultures around the world. Folklore with a bit of fairy tale, these stories about animals and natural events entertain with wit and whimsy. You'll read 'The Healing Waters' from the Iroquois, 'Why Spider Has a Amall Waist' from Liberia, 'Crow Saves the Sun' from Japan, 'Northern Lights' from Sweden, and 'Wren Becomes King of Birds' from Ireland. Here are tales that are hundreds, even thousands of years old, all charmingly retold by Ferguson.

This was previously published as Spirits of the Wild.
