This week we narrated and discussed folktales from South Africa! Like last time, we read tales directly from one book. This one was "South-African Folk-Tales", which is by James A. Honey and was published in 1910. The book is freely available on Project Gutenburg: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/38339/38339-h/38339-h.htm
We read 3 stories from this book; "Crocodile's Treason", "The Monkey's Fiddle" and "The Story of a Dam". Here are some illustrations and stuff:

The knobkirrie mentioned in the story is essentially a large stick with a knob on the end. It's used as a weapon in times of conflict and as a walking stick in times of peace. Here's a pic:
If you have any personal stories about creatures, monsters, or
cryptids (even if you don't know what it was), please email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org so we can eventually do a listener
episode! Visit us at folkloreontherocks.com for more in depth
notes, links, and pictures.
Once we hit 100 iTunes reviews, we'll release a bonus episode with a listener selected creature! Please rate and review us when you have a moment, as it will help us immensely!
