Description

It is with great thanks to James A. Honey that this volume was ever compiled. For there are few volumes currently available with these old and forgotten tales from across South Africa.

In this volume you will find forty-four uniquely South African tales. Stories of The Lost Message, The Monkey’s Fiddle, The Leopard, The Ram and the Jackal, The Lion the Jackal and the Man, Tink-Tinkje, The Lioness and the Ostrich, Crocodile’s Treason, The White Man and Snake, Tortoise Hunting Ostriches, The Judgment Of Baboon, When Lion Could Fly, The Origin Of Death and many more.

In the days before the many languages of South Africa were first recorded and written, these are stories that were used by the Sangomas (medicine women) and the (story tellers) to teach their children the moral lessons of life and orally pass their knowledge on to the next generation.

So gather around the campfire and share the many stories in this book to the delight of young and old alike. Then when the hour grows late, when sparks from the fire have stopped ascending into the black night and young heads and eyelids have grown heavy; when the dying fire is making long shadows dance across the veld, close the book with the promise that another African story will be told on another day. – – – – – – –

Za sestavení této sbírky si James A. Honey zaslouží obrovské poděkování. Podobných knih se starými a zapomenutými příběhy z jižního cípu Afriky je totiž opravdu jen pár.

V této najdete čtyřicet čtyři jedinečných jihoafrických legend. Příběhy se jmény jako Ztracený vzkaz; Opice a housle; Podivné zvíře; Lev, Šakal a Člověk; Tink-Tinkje; Lvice a Pštros; Zrádný Krokodýl; Běloch a Had; Když Lev dovedl létat; Kde se vzala Smrt a mnoho dalších.

V dobách dávno před tím, než byly jazyky černé Afriky poprvé nahrány nebo zapsány, vyprávěly je domorodé šamanky, kterým se říkalo “Sangoma”, a vypravěči “Umxoxi wendaba”, aby učili děti životu v divočině, jeho pravidlům a předávaly poselství dalším generacím.

Tak se sejděte kolem ohně a začtěte se do legend, jež mohou přinést radost a potěšení starým i mladým. A pak – když noc pokročí k ránu, z ohně přestanou vyletovat jiskry a víčka ztěžknou únavou, když stíny skomírajícího plamene zatančí šerem, zavřete knížku a slibte, že další příběh přečtete už zítra.
