Bailey - The Little Red Princess - Keeping the Public in Public Domain

This is the second of two tales about princesses by anthologist and author, Carolyn Sherwin Bailey.  Her anthologies tend to be a good source of seasonal and holiday stories, nature and animal tales, stories centered around the home (of the early twentieth century), traditional tales, and more.  To aid in your finding these wonderful anthologies, I've decided to add hotlinks any time I can find one to help you find additional stories.  This comes from Tell Me Another Story.  Whenever possible I will use a Project Gutenberg posting of Public Domain material.  They certainly embody the spirit of Public Domain and deserve support.

I promised this is not your usual princess, but will let you discover what I mean and why this is listed as a tale of summer.

May you keep the followers of the queen out of your life until the next story appears.

This is part of a series of bi-weekly posting of stories under the category, "Keeping the Public in Public Domain."  The idea behind Public Domain was to preserve our cultural heritage after the authors and their immediate heirs were compensated.  I feel strongly current copyright law delays this intent on works of the 20th century.  I hope you enjoy discovering new stories. 

Currently I'm involved in projects taking me out of my usual work of sharing stories with an audience.  My own library of folklore includes so many books within the Public Domain I decided to share stories from them.  This fall I expect to return to my normal monthly posting of a research project here.  Depending on response, I will decide at that time if "Keeping the Public in Public Domain" should continue along with my monthly postings.
