"This short literary and folklore classic, which has captivated Japan for a century, provides a powerful glimpse into the Japanese psyche and spirit. In 1910, when Kunio Yanagita (1875-1962) wrote and published The Legends of Tono, he had no idea that one hundred years later his book would still have such a significant impact. Now this new and expanded translation, retaining the original's great understanding of Japanese language, history, and lore, will make this literary classic available to new generations of readers. Yanagita is best remembered as the founder of Japanese folklore studies, and Ronald A. Morse, the translator, transcends time to bring the reader a guide to Tono, Yanagita, and these enthralling tales."--BOOK JACKET.

KUNIO YANAGIGTA (1875-1962) is recognized as the founder of folklore studies in Japan. His work in the field comprises some one hundred books and over a thousand articles, including both collections of Japanese folktales and distinguished scholarly works.
