Description: General wear to book. Renoned for their fierceness in battle, for the intricate beauty of their art and for their independence, the Celtic people of the British Isles were equally well known for their love of story telling. Their tradition was essentially an oral one and most of their favourite stories were not written down untill many centuries after they were first told. With over 40 delightful illustrations, Celtic Myths and legends provide an immensely readeble introduction to ancient Celtic tales.
