But the boy did not wish to be placed under the command of others, for with his strength he could overcome them all. On leaving home he comes across a dragon fighting a winged horse. He helps the winged horse escape the dragon?s torment and a legend is born. .....?? Download and read about the adventures and conquests of Vasilica and his horse.

It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, are altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.
