Folk tales are mirrors of people's soul, distilling the wisdom of many generations. Many of the old tales warn the listeners to be respectful of the unseen world around them in the jungle. Mock a spirit, or an animal -- disaster will follow! Disobey farming taboos -- risk a bad harvest, and famine! neglect the poor and helpless members of your society - the good spirits will avenge these victims!


A collection of folktales, collected by Heidi Munan, about the Bidayuh, Iban, Melanau, Orang Ulu and Malay people of Sarawak.
