about this item

This lively and entertaining collection of folk tales from the Scottish Borders is rich in stories tall and true, ancient and recent, dark and funny, powerful and fantastical. Here you will find tales of Thomas the Rhymer, Tam Linn, the Lochmabon Harper, Muckle Moued Meg, and Michael Scott the wizard. These familiar, well-loved, ancient, and magical stories—many of which are published here for the first time—are re-told in a lively, accessible, and engaging style, shaped by James Spence’s many years of storytelling. Richly illustrated with 30 unique drawings, these enchanting tales will appeal to young and old and can be enjoyed by readers time and again.
