Folk Tales

This category focus is upon tales from around the world arising from the experiences, hopes, dreams, myths, and fears of ordinary people. They most often do not have a known author because they have been passed on through oral tradition over many generations. Though there are often derivative tales the central theme of folk tales remains the same and this is what contributes the greatest value of the tale to the people who created these tales as well as the multi-generational audiences who enjoy them.
