OUR AUGUST ONLINE BOOK FAIR OPENS ON 29TH AT 12 NOON - DROP BY IF YOU CAN!
Book Description
First Edition; Yellow end-papers; signed on the title page: "with best wishes from Mona Douglas"; A powerful exciting saga of Celtic passion and tradition set in the Isle of Man of the 1790's, 'Song of Mannin' makes compelling reading. Farmers, shepherds and fishermen all play their part in this tale set amongst the Manx mountains, with its background of ancient Gaelic mythology and mysticism. Love leads to disinheritance and finally the loss of the flock upon which the family fortune rests ... Mona Douglas was brought up among the Manx mountains where she still lives, and the story of Song of Mannin is set in the countryside around her home. As a child and a young girl she did not attend school but spent most of her time in the company of the farmers, shepherds and fishermen of her native island, from whom she collected many traditional songs, dances and stories. Includes contents; list of illustrations & glossary of Manx Gaelic words & phrases
