The stories are organized by type—Animal Tales, Moral Stories, Tales of Deities, Legends, and so on—with the group of origin noted for each tale. In addition, the book contains historical background on the minority groups, recipes, games, crafts, a map, a glossary of terms, color photos, and black & white design motifs.
