Description
 
A new edition of this popular collection of over 50 traditional tales from the land of Galloway. Alan Temperley pays tribute to the great Scottish tradition of storytelling. Heroes, ghosts and smugglers, mermaids, martyrs, witches and fairies, reivers, monsters and colourful rogues run wild through these pages, their stories bearing the full flavour of some of the most beautiful rolling countryside in Britain.

Originally told in crofts and rural cottages, they grew naturally out of the rich past and the land and the lives of the people--wonderful stories. And they are as alive today as when they were first heard.
