Myths and Folk Tales of Ireland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty folk tales representing hundreds of years of the collective Irish imagination transport readers to a world where everything is alive and anything can happen! Vivid descriptions of battles with giants, dead men who come back to life, humans imprisoned in animals' bodies, heroes with incredible strength, and more.

Synopsis:

Taken down from Gaelic storytellers, the 20 tales included in this book are divided into two parts: 11 are miscellaneous stories offering Irish versions of the general European fairy tales, and 9 are stories from the Fenian cycle--tales of Fin MacCumhail and his warriors, the Fenians of Erin.
