The Coming of the Unicorn
Scottish Folk Tales for Children
Also available as: eBook
Duncan Williamson came from a family of Travelling People, who told stories around the campfire for entertainment and for teaching. In this collection, he passes on some of their wonderful children's folk and fairy tales.
This collection includes tales about cunning foxes and storytelling cats, hunchbacked ogres and beautiful unicorns, helpful broonies and mysterious fairies, rich kings and fearsome warriors, as well as those about ordinary folk trying to make their way in the world. The stories have been written down as faithfully as possible to Duncan's unique storytelling voice, full of colour, humour and life.
