Myths and Folk-Lore of Ireland

Jeremiah Curtin

Myths and Folk-Lore of Ireland by Jeremiah CurtinMyths and Folklore of Ireland is the first of many works published by the renowned American translator Jeremiah Curtin. The volume is comprised of twenty-three Irish myths, in which the the legends of Fin MacCumhail feature prominently. While the collection includes tales of Kings, Queens, princes, and princesses, it also tells stories of tailors' sons, fishermen, and many other normal folks who make good in the most surprising circumstances. More given to legend than fairy, Myths and Folklore of Ireland is better suited to adult readers than children. Once again, you're invited to curl up with...

Georgian Folk Tales

Marjory Wardrop

Georgian Folk Tales by Marjory WardropIt is not widely known that the Caucasus corridor, geographic home to the nation of Georgia, was a well travelled arm of the famous Silk Route that linked Asia and Europe. Silk, merchandise, and stories were traded through this region for countless generations. On one hand, Georgia shared a religious and political connection with Byzantium (Christendom), and on the other a constant cultural discourse with Persia and Turkey (Islam). In later years, links to Russia further enriched the cultural traditions of this crossroad of civilisations. It is therefore not surprising that the nation of Georgia...

The Radio Boys Search for the Inca's Treasure

Gerald Breckenridge

The Radio Boys Search for the Inca's Treasure by Gerald Breckenridge"This is a wonderful land, fellows, full of legend and story, vast mountains, vast rivers, vast jungles, unexplored territory and unconquered tribes." It was Jack Hampton speaking, and he leaned on the rail of a coastwise steamer, as she came to anchor in the open roadstead of Valparaiso. "I wonder what lies ahead," said Frank Merrick, leaning beside him. "We ought to get some adventure out of this, besides mere civilized travel." Even Bob Temple, the most matter-of-fact of the three chums known as the Radio Boys, felt his imagination stirred......... And so begins the latest adventure of the...

The Saga of Eirik the Red

Dr. Gudbrand Vigfusson

The Saga of Eirik the Red by Dr. Gudbrand VigfussonThis is the Saga of Eirik the Red. This volume is more saga, or fact, than fiction. Despite this being a fact-based saga there is still plenty of action to enthral, for Eirik the Red and his two sons, Thorstein and Leif, were definitely men of action. It charts how his family first came to Iceland, his birth, his removal from Norway, his discovery of Greenland and the birth of his, more famous son Leif. It also gives account for time spent in Vinland (Nova Scotia) and gives account of their interaction with and action defending against the people they called the SkrÅ"lingar, or, North American...

Popular Tales of the Norse

Sir George Webbe Dasent

Popular Tales of the Norse by Sir George Webbe DasentThis is George Dasent's classic collection of Scandinavian folklore. This is not about Norse mythology per se; so if you are looking for tales of Odin, Loki, and Freya etc., we would refer you to a volume entitled Tiivistelmä. Rather, this is a volume that is more fairy and less Viking, or Saga, in nature. This is an anthology of folk tales, similar to the Grimm Brothers, or Campbell's Popular Tales of the West Highlands (also published by Abela Publishing). All of the usual suspects are in place, including giants, trolls, witches, evil step-siblings, magical boons and tasks, and anthropomorphic...

The Saga of Grettir the Strong

Eirkr Magnsson

The Saga of Grettir the Strong by Eirkr MagnssonIn this saga, Grettir's life is told from beginning to end. As a child, he is rebellious and bad-tempered. He is described as red haired, freckled, and broad around the eyes. But he is also courageous. He takes on and defeats a draugr, a walking corpse or Norse equivalent of a zombie. But in doing so he is cursed, and this is thought to be the cause of his later misfortunes. At times Grettir falls into the role of a bona fide hero, but he is blamed for setting fire to a hall, killing many men, and is condemned by the Thing (assembly) to outlawry (although many suspect the validity of this sentence)....

A Compendium of Rare, Olde and Forgotten Faerie Tales

John D. Halsted

A Compendium of Rare, Olde and Forgotten Faerie Tales by John D. HalstedThis book has especially been republished to raise funds for the BBC's Children in Need appeal. The words 'Fairy Tales' must accordingly be taken to include tales in which something 'fairy', something extraordinary occurs -- fairies, giants, dwarfs, speaking animals. One cannot imagine a child saying, 'Tell me a folk-tale', or 'Another nursery tale, please, grandma'. It must also be taken to cover tales in which something magical happens. Mostly it is the comical stupidity of some of the actors, as is so common in moral tales. This book is compiled of old, rare and forgotten Fairy Tales and...

Yoruba Legends

M. I. Ogumefu

Yoruba Legends by M. I. OgumefuThe Yoruba people are descendants from a variety of West African communities. They are united by Geography, History, Religion and most importantly their Language. Many years ago, before African slavery, the Yoruba people inhabited an area which stretched, along the coast of West Africa, all the way inward and down to Angola in South West Africa. IN modern times we have begun paying close attention to folklore-old tales, not invented by one man, but belonging to the whole people; not written down, but told by parents to their children, and so handed on for hundreds of years. The legends and fairy...

Gods Chain - Genesis - The First Degree

Nikolaus Baker

Gods Chain - Genesis - The First Degree by Nikolaus BakerIn the Scottish village of Magg-linne things are not quite normal, as a freak earthquake hits and precipitates a dramatic fall in temperature. Meanwhile, across Europe, in the Vatican City, mystery surrounds an untraceable security breach in the computerised nerve-centre of papal authority. This has ramifications for the suspect intentions of Cardinal Giovanni Dalla Gassa. He has plans for a "new Genesis" once he is in possession of the links to God that would tip the cosmic and spiritual balance in favour of the holder. The mystery thickens with the involvement of the freemasons, the Vatican...

Polynesian Mythology and Ancient Traditional History Of The New Zealanders

Sir George Grey

Polynesian Mythology and Ancient Traditional History Of The New Zealanders by Sir George GreyTOWARDS the close of 1845 Sir George Grey was unexpectedly requested to administer the affairs of New Zealand. On arrival he found the Maori tribes engaged in hostilities with the Queen's troops, against whom they had contended with considerable success. He quickly realised he could neither successfully govern, nor hope to conciliate, with a people whose language, manners, customs and religion he was quite unacquainted. He decided that he should be acquainted with the language of the New Zealanders in order to redress their grievances. With no published Maori dictionary, nor books to study its...

Tiivistelma

John Halsted

Tiivistelma by John HalstedWhen searching for a suitable title that would best describe a compendium of Viking myths and legends compiled especially for storytellers, it was no easy task choosing a single word that would encompass the rich and diverse anthology that is Viking folklore and myth. Dissapointingly (for me) the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian translations of the word compendium were returned as kompendium. However, the Finnish translation was returned as Tiivistelmä. And so Tiivistelmä it has become. Like so many projects, the birth of this book came from a completely separate, yet similar, project and...

Gypsy Folk Tales - Book One

Francis Hindes Groome

Gypsy Folk Tales - Book One by Francis Hindes GroomeIn recent times, much has been written and reported in the press about "Travellers", as Gypsies are now more popularly known. All too often these reports are negative. However, the Gypsy lifestyle is simultaneously romanticised by the media and has been for generations. Because urban city dwellers "buy into the dream", put down roots, tie themselves to mortgages and keenly run the "rat race", could it be that the distrust of Gypsies and Travellers is born out of envy and a desire to pack it all in and live the relatively unpressured, simple, and free lifestyle of the Gypsies? This book is a...

Roumanian Fairytales and Legends

Elizabeth B. Mawr

Roumanian Fairytales and Legends by Elizabeth B. MawrGiven Romania's long and diverse cultural history, it is no surprise that the country has such a rich tapestry of folk tales, fairy tales, and legends. It is fortunate that so many of these stories survived the country's turbulent history and were passed down throughout the ages to countless Romanian children. In approximately 82 BC, the rule of the Dacian kings was replaced by the Romans, who were forced out by the Goths, who, in turn, were supplanted in the 4th century AD by the Huns. After this, a sequence of nomadic rulers, including the Gepids, the Avars, the Bulgars, the Pechenegs, and...
