International Folktales

Are you looking for a folktale from a specific country?  Some of them are published as single stories, and some are in collections. The following documents will help you locate these stories.  The first link is to stories in collected works.  The second will explain the title codes used in the first list.  The third is a list of single stories.  This list was last updated in 2015.  For additional assistance, please ask at the service desk at Keffer Library.
