Jacobs attempted to do what the brothers Grimm did for Germany,
so far as that was possible. In Jacob's own words "The Celtic materials are so rich that it would tax the resources of a whole clan of Grimms to exhaust the field".
In this volume you will find 20 Celtic tales of Jack the Cunning
Thief, Paddy o'Kelly and the Weasel, the Dream of Owen
O'Mulready, The Farmer of Liddesdale, The Greek Princess and the Young Gardener, Elidore, the Ridere of Riddles and more.
In Jacobs' own words, "The Celts went forth to battle, but they always fell. Yet the captive Celt has enslaved his captor in the realm of imagination." In an attempt to give a library of the
Celts' wealthy imagination to his readers, Jacobs has attempted to begin the readers' captivity with the earliest recordings of these tales. And captivate he does-More Celtic Fairy Tales not only preserves a cultural history, but is also richly entertaining.
We invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of Celtic folklore not seen in print for over a century; immerse yourself in the tales and fables not heard in homes for many a year.
A percentage of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the Prince's Trust for their work with youth across the United Kingdom.
