book encloses a collection of myths, legends and other fireside tales from
members of the Brownie race. These stories are rarely written down by the
Brownie tribes themselves, and never in Tharian, so have been converted
into the common tongue whilst retaining as much of the Brownie ideaology
as possible. Where the translation seems strange to the reader's tongue,
we apologise, and hope only that they may enjoy the charm in these nuggets
of Brownie convention. So, without further arranging of the seating mats,
please sit back and choose a tale....
