James Stephens' "Irish Fairy Tales," brings to vivid life the exciting days of ancient Ireland when Conn of the Hundred Battles was High King at Tara and the great Fionn mac Uail led the Fianna against the enemies of Ireland. *** Fionn mac Uail was a hunter-warrior of Irish mythology (appearing also in the mythologies of Scotland and the Isle of Man). The stories of Fionn and his followers, the Fianna, form the Fenian cycle or Fiannaidheacht. *** Fionn was the son of Uail, leader of the Fianna, and Muirne, daughter of the druid Tadg mac Nuadat who lived on the hill of Almu in County Kildare. From this beginning Fionn becomes the greatest warrior in Irish mythology. *** Filled with adventure, humor, magic, and romance, Irish Fairy Tales was hailed as one of the great fairy tale classics when it was first published in 1920. Even today it appeals greatly to readers of all ages. *** This volume includes the ten tales: "The Story of Tuan Mac Cairill," "The Boyhood of Fionn," "The Birth of Bran," "Oisin's Mother," "The Wooing of Becfola," "The Little Brawl at Allen," "The Carl of the Drab Coat," "The Enchanted Cave of Cesh Corran," "Becuma of the White Skin," and "Mongan's Frenzy
