The People Of The Sea: Celtic Tales of the Seal-Folk

by David Thomson
£9.99   paperback  Canongate Books Ltd (Canongate Canons) (2018)

The People Of The Sea: Celtic Tales of the Seal-Folk by David Thomson Introduced by Seamus Heaney, The People of the Sea brings to life the legend of the mythical selchies, in beautiful, poetic prose.
 
When David Thomson took a journey to the sea coasts of Scotland and Ireland to seek out the legend of the selchies - mythological creatures who transform from seals into humans - a magical world emerged. Men were rescued by seals in stormy seas, took seal-women for their wives and had their children suckled by seal-mothers.
 
Timeless and haunting, The People of the Sea retains its spellbinding charm and brings to life the enchanting stories of these mysterious creatures of Celtic folklore.
