The collection consists of 78 Ukrainian folk tales translated by Olga Vesey, two of her stories: "A Ukrainian Socrates" and "Beautiful Tyotia", eulogy by Nina Westaway, Olga's biography from her personal writing to granddaughter Margaret Olga Westaway in 1990, and family photographs. One collection of Olga's translations of Ukrainian folk tales was published in 1975 as The Flying Ship, which was an award winning children's book. Before she died in 1995, she asked her daughter Nina to publish her stories. Some of them have appeared in other English publications, but have never been published as a collection.

The collection is organized in three series: first contains Olga Vesey's biographical and autobiographical materials, second - translations of Ukrainian folk tales, and third - short stories by Olga Vesey.

The Kule Folklore Centre created an online project featuring this collection and its materials, some of them full text:
