SANDHURST, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2009) - In association with World Literacy Day, Abela Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of two more out of print books as fundraisers for the Westville Boys High Scholarship fund. One-third the profit from each book sale will be donated to the Scholarship Fund. The new books are the latest in a series begun by "South African Folk Tales" (originally published in 1910), which brings the total number of fundraising books for the Fund to three.

The new titles are:

"Specimens of Bushman Folklore". This collection of Bushman folklore, myths, legends, superstitions, and lessons was documented in the late 19th century in Mowbray near Cape Town. The book's synopsis, review, and purchasing details can be found at http://www.abelapublishing.com/bushman.html.

"Hausa Folklore". This volume consists of stories and legends from the Hausa people of West Africa, and was originally published in 1913. The synopsis, review, and purchasing details of the book can be found at http://www.abelapublishing.com/hausa.html.

The three books comprise Abela Publishing's latest series, "Folk-Lore, Fairy Tales, Myths and Legends from Around the World"; they have been republished to raise funds for underprivileged students across the globe. Full details of the books in the series can be found at http://www.abelapublishing.com/myths.html.
