KIRKUS REVIEW

Another companion volume to Oxford's series that has so far included English and Fairy Stories and Irish Sagas and Folk-Tales, is an attractive collection of stories from the Scottish past. The tales are arranged in two sections- the first a round up of familiar ones like ""Whippety Stourie"", about a lady who managed to persuade her husband to free her from the task of spinning. The second includes tales from the episode of the Finns, a clan of warriors that belonged to both Ireland and Scotland in the days when the Lochlannaich (Norwegians) were on the warpath.
