The Scottish folklorist J.F. Campbell pieced 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.
