The ancient Celtic lands of Erin and Alba, Ireland and Scotland, are rich in myth, legend, folklore and the tradition of oral storytelling. From stories of the fearless Fianna, to enticing tales of saints and the bewitching legends of faerie folk, this magical book brings together ancient with contemporary stories to create a rich legacy of tales, given a history perspective by editor Linda Williamson. Legends of the overwhelming power of love, faith and passion stand alongside adventures of cunning and bravery. Myths that explore Scottish history and heritage are contrasted with quirky comic tales of magic and mischief. Collected by a master storyteller 'Out of the Mouth of the Morning' captures the excitement of hearing a story performed.

David Campbell was born in Edinburgh and spent his childhood in the story, and song, rich North-East of Scotland where he gained a lifelong passion for the poetry and power of the word.

He co-wrote a children?s book The Three Donalds (Scottish Children?s Press), wrote two collections of stories (St Andrews Press) and is at present working on a literary ceilidh of the great traveller Duncan Williamson. As a popular ambassador of Scottish lore and literature, he has toured extensively with his repertoire of talks and stories. He currently lives in Edinburgh.
