Animals played a crucial role in many aspects of Celtic life: in the economy, hunting, warfare, art, literature and religion. Such was their importance to this society, that an intimate relationship between humans and animals developed, in which the Celts believed many animals to have divine powers. In Animals in Celtic Life and Myth, Miranda Green draws on evidence from early Celtic documents, archaeology and iconography to consider the manner in which animals formed the basis of elaborate rituals and beliefs. She reveals that animals were endowed with an extremely high status, considered by the Celts as worthy of respect and admiration.

Myths and Folklore of Ireland is the first of many works published by the renowned American translator Jeremiah Curtin. The volume is comprised of twenty-three Irish myths, in which the the legends of Fin MacCumhail feature prominently. While the collection includes tales of Kings, Queens, princes, and princesses, it also tells stories of tailors' sons, fishermen, and many other normal folks who make good in the most surprising circumstances. More given to legend than fairy, Myths and Folklore of Ireland is better suited to adult readers than children. A percentage of the profits from this book will be donated to the Prince's Trust for education scholarships for the underprivileged.

Most people know of Valhalla, the World-Tree and the gods of Norse mythology, or of the strange hunts and voyages of the ancient Irish tales. Yet few people realise the significance of the similarities and contrasts between the religions of the pre-Christian people of north-western Europe. The Celts and Germans and Scandinavians had much in common in their religious practices and beliefs ... There are striking resemblances in their ideas about battle-goddesses and protective spirits, holy places, sacrificial rituals, divination and ideas about the Other World, and [this book] poses questions like: do such parallels go back to early times or are they due to late Viking contact? ... [This book] is aimed at teachers and libraries but [is] also accessible to students of history, religion and Celtic, Norse and German languages and cultures.-Back cover.
