We now leave the mild climate of the ancient Aegean, and the cold, forbidding regions of the North. Here, we enter the lush, green land, shrouded in mists of magic and wonders. The land is young yet ancient; beautiful yet intriguing; and something quite magical.
We meet people who are fair and noble. Yet when aroused into battle, these people can easily become savage. One can lose their heads, quite literally, at the end of the swords.
Here we turn our page to Celtic Mythology.
Though Celtic myths was not written until eleventh century AD, after the Vikings was driven out of Ireland, their sources, mostly oral traditions, were quite old. Even ancient.
Many of the myths that come to us, come mainly from Ireland and Wales. Celtic myths also included those from Scotland, Cornwall and Brittany (in France). We have to thank the Welsh myths, and to a lesser degree to the Irish, for the legends of King Arthur. While the medieval romance of Tristan and Isolde originated in Brittany, it gained popularity in Continental Europe and the British Isles.

This book is based on stolen artwork. He stole the art work of Mitch Foust and is not giving him any credit. Please strike this item from your site.
These ARE stolen. The drawings can all be found on Foust's Deviant Art page, which is just a really crappy thing to do. I don't understand why you would sell stolen art B&N. So why are you?
