Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805054006, Hardcover)A collection of traditional ghost and fairy stories haunted by stunning land- and seascape images of their rural Irish origins Rooted in the oral storytelling tradition of rural Ireland, the twenty-three Irish ghost and fairy stories that make up At the Edge of the World are mythic and awe-inspiring. Accompanied by forty contemporary photographs that capture the beauty and power of the landscape, the stories recount the stirring sagas of courage and bravery, the magical tales and supernatural legends of ghosts and demons that have enchanted Irish listeners for centuries.
The eerie quality achieved by angle and light in these photographs reflects the mysterious and romantic qualities of these stories, which include, among others, "The Magic Ship," "The Legend of Knockmany," "Murtough and the Witch Maiden," "The Soul Cages," and "The Fate of the Children of Lir."
This stunning gift book will be irresistible to anyone with an interest in myth and legend, history, photography, the power of landscape, and, most importantly, a good yarn.
