The story style, written at the turn of the century will make it dull reading for some, but to people looking for the myths of the Celtics this is a good starting place. One of Dover Editions, it has 76 illustrations and woodcuttings helping support the stories. Now of the works are very original, no fresh look at the lore and its meaning, as I did with artist Carmon Deyo in the THREE FACES OF THE GODDESS, my essays and Carmon's paintings, which has won awards and approval for the new look at lore. But they are a basic foundation of tales and for someone looking to start learning about the Celtics lore and myths, it is a very good starting point. It covers the religion of the Celts, the cycle of the Irish Invasions, the Early Melesian Kings, The Ultorian Cycle, the Ossianic Cycle and the Fianna and the Isle of Women Warriors. Highly recommended for those beginning the journey.
