Arokin TALES

Ananzi And Baboon
00:00 / 02:34

This is the very first book in Part 3 - Africa, following on from the titles in Parts 1 and 2 covering a host of nations and regions across Europe and North America.


Tales From The World's Firesides is a grand project. I've collected thousands of traditional texts as part of other projects, and while many of the original texts are available through channels like Project Gutenberg, some of the narratives can be hard to read for modern audiences, and so the Fireside project was born. Put simply, I collect, collate and adapt traditional tales from around the world and publish them as a modern archive.
