Half Brother is a disabled boy who is teased by his arrogant brothers. One day their exasperated father orders them all into the jungle to fend for themselves. They get lost and end up being enticed into a house by a kind old lady. Six of the brothers scoff the food provided by the old lady and fall asleep, but Half Brother stays awake, suspecting that she is really a demon in disguise. Unique among folktales, Half Brother is the only disabled folk hero. He is at once beautiful and brave. What he lacks in physical strength he makes up for in intelligence and wit.

This practical guide on all the steps involved with survey implementation covers survey management, questionnaire design, sampling, respondent's psychology and survey participation, and data management.
