Each story is presented in the Warao language (transcribed phonemically) and followed by the English translation of Dr. Henry Osborn. The tales are divided into sections dealing with various subjects such as: Tales of Origin, Tales of Men and Women, Tales of Animals, Tales of Enemies, etc. Various versions of the same tale are often given.
