About Book

Book Description
"From childhood I heard tales of ghosts, banshees, haunted castles, mischievous and friendly sprites, snatches of ballads, and political arguments.... It was not until I came to Dublin and met Standish O'Grady, A.E., and Kuno Meyer that I realized what a heritage waited for me in Celtic literature. I read every translation I could get, learned Irish, and betook myself to Gaelic Ireland where, by turf fires, I could hear the poems of the Fianna recited by folk who had heard the faery music and had danced in faery circles."

Here is a collection of wonderful tales from Ella Young's classic retelling of Celtic stories. These stories are selected from Celtic Wonder Tales, The Wonder Smith and His Son, The Tangle-Coated Horse, and The Unicorn with Silver Shoes.

About the Author
Ella Young was born in 1867 in the little village of Feenagh, County Antrim. She died in California in 1956.
