The purpose of this study was to determine if popular Czech folklore could be located, rewritten and illustrated in a manner which would vivify aspects of ancient Czech life. A literature search and personal interviews revealed five legends which were well-known by most Czechs. heads of Czech societies in the United States verified which was the best known. The legend was then rewritten in picture storybook form and illustrated to convey information about the costumes, geography, and landmarks of these people.
