Overview

The Scottish folklorist J.F. Campbell pieces together the tale of the Celtic Dragon, an intricate oft-told story involving not just dragons but mermaids, giants, and fairies. This story, or portions thereof, is found in many Indo-European folklore traditions, as far away as India. Campbell includes not only his merged narrative, but original Gaelic texts for two of the episodes. This book includes an introduction by George Henderson, the Gaelic text and an English translation of the related tale of Fraoch and the Dragon.

The dragon myth appears in numerous languages. The author of this work presents the Celtic version of the classic myth in a translation which reflects the spirit and beauty of the original Gaelic. The volume also includes "The Geste of Fraoch" and "The Death of Fraoch", "The Three Ways" and "The Fisherman" in the original Gaelic.
