Although Muslims comprised the largest community in Palestine which had been governed by successive Muslim rulers, there were also significant numbers of Christians and Jews. Out of centuries of their peaceful co-existence comes this entertaining collection of folklore, written at the start of the 20th century. Of special interest are the stories of the Jinn, magical beings that correspond to the European fairies, the accounts of folk-magic, and folklore from all three religions about biblical topics. The book covers the entire gamut of folkloric themes: animal tales, tales about fools, calendar lore, and so on. There is an intriguing chapter about the lore of coffee, its history, and the etiquette of preparing and drinking it.
