Ghana Folk Tales

By Peter Eric Adotey Addo. Exposition, $3.00.

The hero of these engaging traditional tales from Africa is the spider, a sly scamp who frequently outsmarts himself with his own chicanery. He has a dim kinship with Br’er Rabbit, which may or may not mean anything, and one story (nonspider) is purely, and bafflingly, Aesop.
