Russian Folk Fairy Tales is a wonderful collection of the most famous Russian fairy tales.
The "Russian skazki" ("skazatz" means to tell) are the mass of folk-tales distributed widely throughout all the Russias. Handed down, by constant repetition, from generation to generation, a possession common to peasant's hut and Prince's palace from a time when history did not exist, they are today, from Archangel to the Black Sea, and from Siberia to the Baltic, almost as much a part of the life of the people as the language itself.
Famous Russian fairy tales are "Vasilisa the Beautiful", "Sister Alenushka", "Brother Ivanushka", "The Tale of Ivan Tsarevich and the Gray Wolf", "Marya Morevna", "Princess Frog or Frog-tsarevna", "Finist Clear Falcon's Feather or Finist the Falcon".
