These lively and entertaining traditional folk tales from Ireland's "Garden County" are vividly retold by local storyteller Brendan Nolan. Their origins lost in the mists of time, these 30 stories from across Wicklow reflect the wisdom (and eccentricities) of the county and its people. Wicklow has a rich and diverse collection of tales, from stories of battles and heroic deeds to tragic love affairs and strange tales of encounters with ghosts, fairies, dragons, and demons. These stories, illustrated with 25 line drawings, bring alive the county’s landscape from its majestic mountains to its sandy bays.
