This is a collection of myths, folk tales and legends from the animism of the earliest ages, synchronized with the Hinduism which arrived in Java in 75 AD. Life then pivoted on the belief that every stone, tree, mountain and river had a spirit. There was much fantasy, magic, witchcraft, belief in astrology, necromancy and a multitude of gods, both good and evil. These stories have been selected from different provinces in the archipelago and aim to make interesting reading as well as providing insights into the cultural heritage of our ancestors.
