A Red Woman was Crying includes eight stories and the eponymous Red Woman myth.

 

The first seven stories (set in 1969-70) are narrated by Nagovisi, and the last one (“Coda,” set in 2003) is (we are led to believe) in the anthropologist’s voice.

 

On this site you can find the text of A Red Woman Was Crying (the myth) and the story "I'm Going to Sovele."

 

You can also find all the myths and folktales that were in the 2013 edition.
