A Touch of the Irish Traditional History
A thoroughly delightful book that can be read and reread and then reread to the youngster sitting at your knee. Absolutely enchanting. It speaks of a different age when, before the Druids and their spirits had been banished by the Church to make way for the Scientific Age where disbelief is the norm, the wee people roamed the island and brought the Irish good luck or misfortune, depending on whether they had an ear to listen. An absolutely marvelous book.
