Most of the stories are folk tales so there is a certain amount of repetition I really appreciated the source notes on where the tale came from because there are familiar elements from other sources The Two Johns was almost exactly like something I d read in a book of fairy tales but its origins are Portuguese from where it was carried down through slaves but it was also carried into European fairy talesThe last section contains some true stories and some that appear to be less true and these were the most interesting to me That is especially true for the title tale The People Could Fly which is beautiful and still affecting all these years later
