A sequel to Heathe and Broom (1960, J-195) this again reflects a poetic appreciation of the Scottish language and an inherent understanding of a strange and beautiful . The stories in The and Thyme include six -- tales told by expert storymakers at festive gatherings involving members of the audience-: one cottage story -- a true tale I as it was first told-: one a mixture of legend and cottage , and three supernatural and medieval legends. This precise categorization how refined an art is Scottish storytelling; Just as a meeting with the lasses and , the fairies and folk in these pages prove how delightful a world it depicts.
