Oil in the Borsch is the sixth volume in the folk tales series, with seventeen stories; some are old favorites and some are less well-known. All the stories are retold in a lively, entertaining manner that will please both young and old. The delightful illustrations add another dimension to the enjoyment of the tales.

Review - This series is important because it collects those tales which the first pioneers, emigrants, brought with them to Canada... It is a difficult task to gather these tales and then to translate them into English... the Ukrainian community is fortunate to have a person such as Danny Evanishen - Ukrainian Language Radio Program "Radio Rozmova," in Winnipeg, Manitoba on CKJS Reviewer - J Zurowsky
