       Additional Information  
     
      In the Highlands of Scotland the Seanachie, or Bard, occupies an honored place in the household of every clan chief. The multitude of tales they told were passed on from generation to generation over many centuries, yet the stories still retain their vivid sharpness and interest.

    Fitzroy Maclean himself assumes the role of storyteller in this book, with a personal collection of favorite tales from his native land. Ranging from the thousand-year-old tale of "Deirdre of the Sorrows" to tales of brave warriors, treacherous love, and the mischievous or chilling influences of ghosts and spirits, this is an entertaining and evocative collection. Some stories are surprisingly candid and bawdy, some are shocking, many are very amusing, and all are marvelous testaments to the wonders of the human imagination.
