The Celtic belief that by recording a story the spirit of the story and its teller would die, has meant that generations worth of stories of have been lost.
Celtic Sea Stories brings together myths and legends from the past, which the author has collected throughout his lifetime, along with others written specifically for the collection, to provide an enchanting vision of Scottish life by the sea.
From kings and fairies to mermaids and witches every tale explores a different aspect of a forgotten way of life.
Before schools and television storytelling was the only way to entertain, impart wisdom and explain the inexplicable.
Celtic Sea Stories allows readers to share in the storytelling experience again and again, while learning about Scottish history and culture.
