Celtic Myth and Legend (Celtic, Irish)

The legends of ancient Britain retain a profound allure for readers around the world, assuring a warm reception for this introduction to the colorful pageant of Celtic myth. Its wondrous tales range from the oft-told deeds of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to the less-familiar adventures of the mighty Finn and his Fenians, Ulster's Champions of the Red Branch, and other figures from the Gaelic pantheon. Tracing the exploits of kings and saints back to their earliest origins, the author reveals the pagan roots beneath the medieval Christianity and follows the stories' transformations into the fairy tales of the Victorian age. Minimal use of scholarly notes and a highly accessible style make this reader-friendly volume an ideal steppingstone in the path toward the magic cauldron of Celtic myth.

Greek Myths, Western Style

When Barbara McBride-Smith was first introduced to the ancient Greeks, she didn't quite hear right. When her teacher told her they lived in the cradle of western civilization, young Barbara thought she said Western civilization—as in central Texas, around about Waco, where they seemed to fit right in. Ol' Man Zeus, after all, was a gun-totin' Big Daddy, sort of the J.R. Ewing of Mount Olympus. And the Metheus brothers, Pro and Epi? High school all-state football heroes who never got over their glory days. You know that sexpot Aphrodite, the school basketball queen, and Pandora the debutante (who got framed by the good ol' boys, by the way). The best guitar picker around was Orpheus—Tom T., Jerry Lee, Willie, and Chet, all rolled up in one. (Last we heard, he'd hit it big down in Austin.) And wasn't it Medusa who started the fashion trend known as Big Hair? With her incurable Texas drawl, feminist sympathies, and cheerleader's do-right attitude, storyteller Barbara McBride-Smith spins the Greek myths as you've never heard them before.

Tales of intrigue in this book include unusual unsolved crimes, unidentified flying objects, spine-tingling ghost stories, well-documented sea creature sightings, and more. Based on historic accounts from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Montana Myths and Legends recounts several myths and mysteries from the Big Sky State's past, verifying some tales from multiple accounts and exposing some stories for what may have really occurred.
