This review is from: Welsh Fairy Tales (Kindle Edition)
Although I love free ebooks, when this book was originally written, it was obviously done by someone who was working from 2nd hand knowledge. I was under the impression that the author was an American of welsh descent. It was also written at the time when welsh culture was in danger of being lost, because several of the tales are repeating themes and are often rolled up and hidden inside other tales. While I understand that many themes have differing versions, it is frustrating to read what is essentially the same thing two or three times on the trot! A little careful editing would have made all the difference, though I do understand that the ebook was produced by a team of volunteers and I do appreciate that. It was just too much of a muddle to be an enjoyable read though.
