Description

by William Montgomerie and Illustrated by Norah Montgomerie

The classic folk tales of Scotland were passed down from storyteller to storyteller, and from the first sentence they held the attention of the listeners and readers as though a spell had been cast over them, transporting them to a magical realm where mermaids and men, selkies and sailors, ogres and princesses all mingle and are miraculously transformed

First published in 1956, the Montgomeries, distinguished folklorists, gathered these captivating stories from all parts of Scotland

This collection became a classic of the storytelling tradition retold in a simple, dramatic style, appealing to adult and child alike

Now published by Birlinn Limited in a handsome gift edition and illustrated with Norah Montgomerie's own original drawings, it is a book to be treasured for years as the key to an enchanted, timeless world
