First published in 1922, this is a wonderful and unique collection of folk-lore, legend and fantasy from Uganda. The author is indebted "to Sir Apolo Kagwa, K.C. M.G., M.B. E., Katikiro of Buganda, for some of the stories in this book, for I first read them in his "Engero za Baganda, " a little work in the Luganda language, now unfortunately out of print. The rest is a small selection from a large number I have picked up during some years in the country-from old wives sitting over their cooking-pots in smoky kitchens, from porters round the camp fire at night, and from that charming mixed multitude which made up "the good old days.""
