31 editions published between 1913 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This translation by R. Sutherland Rattray was begun with his five-year study of the Hausa language, written and verbal. The original manuscripts were written in Arabic and transposed into the Hausa vernacular. This transliteration was aided by maalam Shaihu, learned in the translation of Arabic which was essential to this collection of Hausa tradition and folklore. The stories are presented in much the same way as Aesop's fables. These legends explain the origin of the spider, the cause of thunder, and how the wasp got its small waist. These fables personify morals and principled custom by using characterizations such as witches, chiefs, beautiful maidens, orphans, hunters, and giants
