KIRKUS REVIEW

From the Isle of Man comes this collection of stories and legends collected and retold by Blanche Cowley Young. Rich in poetry,the tales of Man draw from a wide area of reference-- Gaelic, Old Testament, and New Testament characters range through a climate of raging elements, mist, and magic. A strong sense of island civilization permeates these stories, with the sea and its creatures often in the foreground and wisdom revealing itself here with the face of humor, there with a mask of awesome force.
