“Black Tales of Cuba” by Lydia Cabrera

“In this work the author transcribes and collects for sheer delight the set of black legends of Havana. These are Afro-Cuban stories that, although full of fantasy, are not only religious. Most are animal fables. Others are of human characters in which mythology enters secondarily.”
