The People of the Sea - Celtic Tales of the Seal-Folk

Author(s): David Thomson (Foreword by); Seamus Heaney (Introduction by); Stewart Sanderson (Afterword by); David Thomson (Foreword by)

Myth & Folklore

When David Thomson took a journey to the sea coasts of Scotland and Ireland to seek out the legend of the selchies - mythological creatures who transform from seals into humans - a magical world emerged. Men were rescued by seals in stormy seas, took seal-women for their wives and had their children suckled by seal-mothers.


Timeless and haunting, The People of the Sea retains its spellbinding charm and brings to life the enchanting stories of these mysterious creatures of Celtic folklore.
