"I wish that the Brown Bull of Ringlewood would come and carry me off."

In this collection of folk and fairy tales from the Scottish Highlands, we are transported to an enchanted world of persecuted heroines and courageous heroes, scheming stepmothers and monstrous beasts, swan maidens and talking cats, murderous robbers and thieving giants, benevolent fairies and mysterious strangers, and much more...

Whether it is a tale of romance or revenge, legend or magic, this unabridged anthology -- collected by the folklorist, Peter Buchan -- has a story for everyone and is essential reading for lovers of classic Scottish folktales.
