Newbery Medalist Virginia Hamilton tells 24 stories that kept her ancestors' culture alive during slavery, from spirited animal trickster tales and robust tall tales to spine-chilling tales of the supernatural and moving narratives of slaves in search of freedom. Twelve of these tales are on the 78-minute CD, including the hauntingly beautiful title story, "The People Could Fly." Booklist praised the recording as "an outstanding and most welcome production that both complements and extends the original work."

Beautifully written. We homeschool and are doing a comprehensive course study about segregation and slavery. This book and the history surrounding it has been a wonderful edition. After reading The Story of Ruby Bridges and Pink and Say, the whimsical stories telling hard truths has been a welcome change of pace. Many people have probably heard the tales of Brere Rabbit, Fox, Bear and the like. Anyone interested in a wonderful telling in audiobook form should look for Danny Glover reading Brer Rabbit and the Wonderful Tar Baby.

This is a classic book of American Black Folktales with stories that may enrich the youth. The author does an excellent job of relating the stories chosen for this publication. The many awards that this book has received, in my opinion, are well deserved. Books have a way of transporting the reader to another time or place, to captivate the reader to forget his or her surroundings and become one with the storyteller. This classic work fulfills this description.

I had this book as a kid and sad that I couldn't find my copy. I ordered it to use in my high school English classroom to give students a different perspective. My own children enjoyed the stories (except the spookie ones). A wonderful book of slave narratives.

(My granddaughter, Miss Alicia, is giving me this review. She is ten and these are her words) These are different types of stories about black folktales. My favorite folktale was the last one 'The People Could Fly'.The characters in the story get together and they believe they can fly out of slavery and be free. The believe that they can fly because of one slave who told them about their tribe in Africa that could fly.
One reason its my favorites is because it reminds me of Harriet Tubman escaping slavery with other slaves. Another reason I liked the book is that most of the illustrations show what each story is telling about slavery. Other children should read it because it teaches them what was going back in the 1800 and 1700s.
The first time I read the book was with my grandmother when I was little and then I started reading it on my own.

Wonderful stories written in black vernacular. Includes brief notes with historical and cultural background. This is our current family read-aloud, and the entire family loves it.

Bought this book for my daughter and she absolutely loves it! Stated that there are wonderfully stories in this book!

This book is a trifecta:

1. You get to hear the author read her own writing. If you want to hear Virginia Hamilton and James Earl Jones adding their own special lyrical beauty to the reading of these stories, then purchase this version. Considering that Ms. Hamilton died in 2002, this CD is a must have.

I think it is important for children to hear the author reading their own work. So if you can't get to a book reading by the author, this is the next best thing. And you get to hear it over and over again.

2. The illustrations are magical, delicate, and powerful. Every child (but especially black and white) in this nation should hear the stories in this book. Before they know color issues, they should get to know the beauty and dignity of brown skin. To hear the dignity, power, and humanity of their own heritage or that of someone elses, before a world of anger taints them.

3. At the end of each story is a brief history of the story: it's origin, and variations, and other facts that help the story to become more real and personal, especially for a child who wants to know more about their heritage. This will inspire them to ask questions and (if they're older) do research as it caused me to do.
This is a fantastic book that all children should read.
