I would not reccomend this book to anyone looking for an accurate, instead simply stating things as they occurred. The book is divided into each story as its own chapter. I will say that a number of the stories could have done with a clean up of their general flow; in that there were some stories that had little descriptions or evocative imagery, current insight into the celts. Only negative was that the stories llegends repetitive but that is the nature of the stories themselves, rather than the fault of the Nice read with entertaining stories. It is done.
A collection of works that provide some insight into old Celtic spirituality. Rolleston, Celtic Myths and Legends. A thick, rather charming introduction to Irish and Welsh myth, written in the early years of this century. Combines discussions of Celtic religious belief with short retellings of the prominent legends. Many black and white illustrations.
