Both of and from are possible, with different meanings, of course.
....a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories of Nature, about the primeval forest.
This means that the stories are about Nature, they speak of Nature as a whole or they may speak of different happenings, a boa constrictor eating a prey, the birth of baby dolphin, the first flight of a sparrow.....and they are seen as manifestations of Mother Nature.
....a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest.
This means that the stories are about the different things that may happen in Nature: a story about a boa constrictor eating a prey, a story about the slow growth of a little pine tree, the story of a salmon that swims against the drift in a river, the story of the birth of a baby owl.....these are all pictures taken from Nature.
Although one of my friends has already explained them, in fact I cannot yet understand this logic or argument well.
Would anyone possibly readily explain the difference between from and of, considering the bold parts?
