A collection of folk and fairy tales from Hungary called Tales Told By The Wind Mother

 

This volume, Tales Told By The Wind Mother covers stories originating in Hungary and the Magyar tradition. András Róna-Tas suggests that the Hungarians, also known as the Manicha-Er group, originated in the region between the Volga River and the Ural Mountains. 

 

Their independent existence began between the 8th and 5th centuries BC, marking the early development of the proto-Hungarian language.Around 830 AD, when Álmos was about 10 years old, seven related tribes, namely Jenő, Kér, Keszi, Kürt-Gyarmat, Megyer Nyék, and Tarján, formed a confederation in a place called Etelköz. They called themselves the "Hétmagyar" or "Seven Magyars."

 

The leaders of these tribes, known as the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars, which included Álmos, Előd, Ond, Kond, Tas, Huba, and Töhötöm, swore a blood oath of eternal loyalty to Álmos.

 

In essence, this provides a rich history of the Magyar people and a wealth of legends and stories to draw from.
