This tale was collected from Jhanara Amin, who learned the art of storytelling in her childhood from the professional storyteller Mohammad Anwar. “The Golden Necklace”—an Afghan variant of AT 403, The Black and the While Bride—illustrates the role played by women in maintaining the oral tradition of Afghanistan, which continues today despite the wars.
