Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Collection of some fifty-two interlinking fairy tales told by a watchman who lived on a mountaintop to a young boy. Bazhov learned these tales from time spent in the old mines in the Urals. These stories are very well-known in Russia, and have served as the inspiration for numerous films, operas, and ballets.
