Folklore from Africa to the United States: An Annotated Bibliography.
Coughlan, Margaret N., Comp.
The purpose of this selective, annotated bibliography is to reveal original sources of African tales and to trace their relationship to stories carried to the West Indies and the American South. The works cited are available in the collections of the Library of Congress. In addition to collections of folklore, a few linguistic, ethnological, and anthropological studies and some travel accounts and government reports containing tales are included. The collections and studies are divided into the following categories: sub-Saharan Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa, Central Africa, East Africa, the West Indies, and the United States. Each of these sections includes studies and collections for adults and collections for children. (LL)
