The printed original is in parallel columns with the Ainu alongside Batchelors English translations, and these Ainu versions are still considered a valuable source today.About the AuthorJohn Batchelor was an Englishman and a missionary to the Ainu for a large part of his life.

Because of his calling, he needs to be approached with caution as a source, but his large output of Ainu studies is still one of the primary sources for 19th century Ainu life. He is also mildly condescending toward his subjects, but unlike the book Aino Folk-Tales, also posted at sacred-texts, the author of this collection shows at times a genuine appreciation for the Ainu as people and for their yukar as literature.About the PublisherOrange Sky Project is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, Esoteric and Mythology in Kindle format.
