Legends from Yorubaland

by Kemi Morgan

This collection of Yoruba folktales, myths and legends, is written for children. The tales are based on the research of Nigerian scholars into the history, religion and culture of the Yorubas. In the magic world depicted, live heroes larger than life, and villains worse than scoundrels. Animals and plants walk and talk and mingle freely with humans, for it is a world without any form of barrier. Selected to depict heroic exploits, the tales explain the reasons behind some Yorbua social and cultural beliefs.
