KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is Seumas MacManus' final and definitive collection of Irish folk tales recorded in the lilting brogue of their origin. These sharp and pungent stories represent the rich heritage of Irish lore -- encompassing basic moral beliefs and ideals as well as rollicking wit. The themes are varied, ranging from the trials of legendary heroes like Fergus and Dermod to the powers of little men like the Wee Red Man. The rhythms and pace of the writing call for at least one session of reading aloud, though later it can be read independently with equal enjoyment.
