The ninth volume of the fairy stories, this one was first published in 1904.

It includes the wonderful "What the Rose did to the Cypress" from India. Also included are many tales from the US taken from the Native Americans (also called at times in Lang's writings "Red Men", Indians, or simply credited as "From Bureau of Ethnology."

  • What the Rose did to the Cypress
  • Ball-Carrier and the Bad One
  • How Ball-Carrier finished his Task
