The Golden Axe and Other Folk Tales of Compassion and Greed
By Ruth Stotter


The Golden Axe contains fifty-six versions of a folktale collected in thirty countries and three American Indian nations. Together with puppet and play scripts, charts, a classroom game, story notes, and bibliographies of additional scripts and children's books based on this tale, the Golden Axe is designed for teachers and older children interested in how a story adapts to different world views.
