Description - Pilgrims of the Mist by Sheila Stewart

Sheila Stewart, singer, storyteller and author, is one of the last in the line of Scotland's travelling people and she has gathered from family and friends this wonderful collection of travellers' tales. Here are the stories that she and her parents used to listen to by the camp fire as the shadows of night clustered around. There are magical tales here, tales of hauntings and sudden deaths, tales of lovers and childbirths, tales of cruel hardship in a land where all too often the travellers were spurned as social outcasts. There are happy stories too, in which the travellers outwit their persecutors and prosper. Many of the stories recount true events that happened to Sheila and her relations. Running through them all is a vein of humour, laughter in the face of adversity.

Buy Pilgrims of the Mist by Sheila Stewart from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
