Campbell. The Celtic Dragon Myth

Today's free book is The Celtic Dragon Myth by J. F. Campbell with illustrations by Rachel Ainslie Grant Duff. Here is the introductory note by Bruno Hare at the Sacred Texts site: "The Scottish folklorist J.F. Campbell pieced together the tale of the Celtic Dragon, an intricate oft-told story involving not just dragons but mermaids, giants, and sidhe (fairies). This story, or portions thereof, is found in many Indo-European folklore traditions, as far afield as India."
