The People Of The Sea
A Journey In Search Of The Seal LegendBook - 2000
Thompson's (1914-88) classic account of his journeys through the coasts and islands of western Scotland and Ireland gathering tales of the seals and of the people they interact with and apparently sometimes become. The effort and volume were an outgrowth of the Scotsman's documentary series on animal folklore for the BBC; is was the first of his ten books. For this fifth edition, Irish poet Seamus Heaney provides an introduction. The vivid illustrations and haunting music remain with the reader for decades, though neither are actually in the book.
