The Flight of the Golden Bird by Duncan WillamsonSteiner Books
In this collection, Williamson passes on some of these wonderful children's folk and fairy tales. For over sixty years Duncan travelled around Scotland -- on foot, then in a horse and cart, and later an old van—collecting tales, which not only come from the Traveling People but from the crofters, farmers and shepherds he met along the way.
This collection includes stories about silver horses and golden birds, cunning lions and trilling nightingales, brave princesses and magic scarecrows, the four seasons and old Father Time.
At the heart of each story is a lesson about life and what it means to be a good person. The stories have been written down as faithfully as possible to Duncan’s unique storytelling voice, full of color, humor, and life.
