celtictalesfrontcoveropBy Louey Chisholm. Illustrated by Katherine Cameron. A wonderfully illustrated classic, hand-edited and restored to its former glory. Directed primarily at children, this enchanting book contains three classic Celtic legends: The Star-Eyed Deirdre, The Four White Swans, and Dermat and Grania.

Set in the age of the great Celtic realms in Scotland and Ireland, each tale bristles with intrigue, magic, action and wizardry to enthrall readers of all ages.

It was in the retelling of the tales that the author excelled. As he explained: “This little book was written after several variants of the Tales had been read:—Old Celtic Romances, by Dr. Joyce; Reliquae Celticae, by Dr. Cameron; The Pursuit after Diarmud O’Duibhne and Grainne the daughter of Cormac Mac Airt, by Standish Hayes O’Grady; The Three Sorrows of Story-telling, by Dr. Douglas Hyde; The Laughter of Peterkin, by Fiona Macleod, and other translations and retellings.”

An ideal way to introduce young readers to the great Celtic heritage and culture.
