This collection of Welsh legends and folk-tales which has been read and enjoyed for over forty years is now being reissued for a new generation of readers. These spell-binding tales of love, loyalty, greed, and jealousy come from the mountains and valleys of Wales. They tell of a world where peasants and kings live alongside the folk of the faery, and where reality and enchantment intertwine. Things are not always quite what they seem - because when spirit and human worlds meet almost anything is possible...One of very few books available containing Welsh legends and folk-tales. The beautifully retold stories are by an accomplished author in this field. The subject of myths and legends ties in with the National Curriculum. It features a mixture of well-known and less-known myths. Before his recent death, the author lived in Aberystwyth, Wales.show more
