From master storyteller Padriac Colum, winner of a Newbery Honor for The Golden Fleece, comes a collection of fifteen timeless stories that the ancient Celts told more than a thousand years ago.
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. This beautifully illustrated book includes fifteen of these enchanting stories, including bold exploits at the Court of King Arthur.
Filled with handsome heroes, lovely maidens, and menacing sorcerers and giants, these tales continue to entertain.
Padraic Colum (1881–1972) was a poet, a playwright, and a leader of the Irish Renaissance, but he is best known for his works for children, including The Children of Odin and The Golden Fleece (a Newbery Honor Book).
