Excerpt from Historical Tales and Legends: Of the Highlands These tales and legends were very favourably received by a Wide circle of readers, and by the Press generally, as they appeared from month to month in the Celtic Magazine. They are now pub lished in a collected form at the request of many who have previously perused them. I would like to present the. Public with the names of their authors; but as one of them - the Norman and Torquil of the Celtic Magazine - objects to have his name made public, although he has written the greater number of them, I must content myself now by taking advantage of this opportunity to thank him.

The Highlands of Scotland are rich in traditional stories. Even today, in the modern world of internet and supermarkets, old legends dating as far back as the times of the Gaels, Picts and Vikings are still told at night around the fireside. They are tales of the sidh – the fairy people – and their homes in the green hills; of great and gory battles, and of encounters with the last wolves in Britain; of solitary ghosts, and of supernatural creatures like the sinister waterhorse, the mermaid, and the Fuath , Scotland’s own Bigfoot.In a vivid journey through the Highland landscape, from the towns and villages to the remotest places, by mountains, cliffs, peatland and glen, storyteller and folklorist Bob Pegg takes the reader along old and new roads to places where legend and landscape are inseparably linked.

Sung Tales from the Papua New Guinea Highlands

The genres of sung tales that are the subject of this volume are one of the most striking aspects of the cultural scene in the Papua New Guinea Highlands. Composed and performed by specialist bards, they are a highly valued art form. From a comparative viewpoint they are remarkable both for their scale and complexity, and for the range of variation that is found among regional genres and individual styles. Though their existence has previously been noted by researchers working in the Highlands, and some recordings made of them, most of these genres have not been studied in detail until quite recently, mainly because of the challenging range of disciplinary expertise that is required--in anthropology, linguistics, and ethnomusicology. This volume presents a set of interrelated studies by researchers in all of those fields, and by a Papua New Guinea Highlander who has assisted with the research based on his lifelong familiarity with one of the regional genres. The studies presented here (all of them previously unpublished and written especially for this volume) are of groundbreaking significance not only for specialists in Melanesia or the Pacific, but also for readers with a more general interest in comparative poetics, mythology, musicology, or verbal art.

Beyond the faerie realms, all sorts of magical creatures lurk. This book explores some of the more fearsome beasts that have been known to meddle in human affairs. Join renowned fairy expert John T. Kruse as he reveals the secret lives of merfolk and meremaids, river sprites and kelpies, hags and banshees as well as hobs, goblins, bogies daemon dogs, and many more. These are not the cutesy fairies and kindly beings found in light entertainments. These are the magical creatures that tend to terrify instead of help, and learning their ways may be just what you need to survive your own encounter with one of these other-world beasts.
