Rai-Taro, the Son of the Thunder-God: A Legend from Japan

At the foot of the snowy mountain of Haku-san, in the province of Echizen, lived a peasant and his wife. They were very poor, for their little strip of barren mountain-land yielded but one scanty crop a year, while their neighbours in the valley gathered two rich harvests.

Stone Soup: A Traditional Portuguese Tale

The first published version of the fable is that of Madame de Noyer (1663-1719). “Soupe au Caillou” was published in 1720. There are books that attribute the fable to other authors, but they rarely make a case required to truly claim authorship.
