Book Review: The People of the Sea: Celtic Tales of the Sea-Folk


I spent a large portion of my childhood in Scotland, and used to listen to an old man named Tam as he told me stories about the Selkies who live around its coasts. The People of the Sea is a collection of these legends compiled by David Thomson, whose love of folklore and of seal people shines through to make a truly charming tome that is a must-read for anyone with any interest in the folklore of Great Britain.
