Abstract:

Among the greatest storytellers of the world, the ancient Celts told tales that, after more than a thousand years, still bristle with life and excitement. Noted Irish folklorist Padraic Colum (1881-1972) preserved many of Ireland's ancient traditions in collections featuring enchanting tales of old. This handsomely illustrated volume includes fifteen of these beguiling stories, including bold exploits at the Court of King Arthur. Filled with youthful heroes, lovely maidens, and menacing sorcerers and giants, the handsomely illustrated stories will enchant today's audiences as much as they enthralled listeners centuries ago.
