Excerpt from Firelight Stories Folk Tales Retold for Kindergarten, School and Home

Since the childhood of the races, certain old world stories have appeared in various dress in different nations, all bearing the stamp of the same source: the interest of primitive people in rhyme, repetition, and the attributing of human powers to the brute world. It has been my effort to collect and edit a few of these old folk tales.

Perhaps the earliest of all is The Kid Who Would Not Go, which we have in New England as The Old Woman and Her Pig, and which, in its original form, dates back to Hebrew translations.

From Celtic folk lore comes Munacher and Manacher, told in the earliest version as the search of Munacher for a "gad" with which to "hang Manacher," but which I have adapted to a less thrilling ending.
