The Cossacks are a rather isolated Russian culture, and this is a collection of their stories. Due to their relative isolation, some of the stories are very unique, although there are also many which have clear influences from other Eurasian cultures.

Overall these were enjoyable stories, although one of them uses "Jew" to mean "unsavory stranger," which will probably be offensive to some (I was almost offended, and I'm not Jewish or easily offended).

There's an active chart-style table of contents, an active list of the plates (though the pictures are missing), and the few notes present in the tales are properly linked.

This book contains the following stories:

Oh: The Tsar of the Forest
The Story of the Wind
The Voices at the Window
The Story of Little Tsar Novishny...
The Vampire and St Michael
The Story of Tresin, the Bird Zhar...
The Serpent-Wife
The Story of Unlucky Daniel
The Sparrow and the Bush
The Old Dog
The Fox and the Cat
The Straw Ox
The Golden Slippers
The Iron Wolf
The Three Brothers
The Tsar and the Angel
The Story of Ivan and the Daughter of the Sun
The Cat, the Cock and the Fox
The Serpent-Tsarevich and His Two Wives
The Origin of the Mole
The Two Princes
The Ungrateful Children
Ivan the Fool and St Peter's Fife
The Magic Egg
The Story of the Forty-First Brother
The Story of the Unlucky Days
The Wondrous Story of Ivan Golik and the Serpents

I have always enjoyed Fairy Tales and I like Tolstoy, so this book is a great read. If you like the classics, you will most likely enjoy this book.

This is well worth a read. Anyone familiar with western folk tales will find a few common themes, but also plenty of original ones as well.

Bought this on Amazon.com. Very interesting stories, some unique and some with their own special twist on stories found in more than one country or culture. I enjoyed it very much.
