I was first introduced to Ukrainian Folk Tales in the oral tradition by “Babtsya”, my sister’s mother-in-law. She told me a story in Ukrainian when I was 21 years old, and I’ve been searching books ever since, hoping to find an English version of it. So far, I’ve found a few with similar elements, but not one is identical to the version I remember, so I’m still searching. In the meantime, though, I’ve come across a wealth of resources, which I’m happy to share with you. Keep checking this page, as I work on putting this list together.

Cover of "Ukrainian Folk Tales"This is the first collection I ever bought. I believe it is out of print now, but you can look for it second hand and in libraries. It is called Ukrainian Folk Tales, translated from the Ukrainian by Irina Zheleznova, published by Dnipro Publishers in 1981.
