William Elliot Griffis born in Philadelphia in 1843, was an educator, author and
Congregational minister. In 1870 he was invited to go to Japan in order to
modernize the school system and became the Superintendent of Education in the
Province of Echizen. Whilst there he became interested in the folk lore, legends
and stories of the East and began to collect tales from the story tellers that he met
with and the literature that he found there. The thirty four wonderful stories in this
collection are some of the ones that he found and fortunately decided to share
with us. Note: The "Contents" only lists 34 stories but there is an extra one
between No. 25 and No. 26, giving 35 stories in all.
