9781853713071: Stones of Destiny

Nothing is older than stone and all through history stone stories have been told, connecting the physical world with one that is mysterious and unseen. Like all legends, the stone stories of Ireland and Scotland were first passed on by word of mouth. But gradually, as people learnt to write, they were written down and circulated in book form.
Here are some of these stories of pagan stones and Christian stones, stones of good and evil power, gemstones, gravestones and stony places associated with giants, mermaids, demons and spirits. Tales of valour, tales of humour, tales of horror, tales of cunning, tales of grief.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Scottish writer Dunlop presents an eclectic collection of folktales, lore, and other writings about the stones of Ireland and Scotland. From the words on Jonathan Swift's tomb to tales of heroes, mermaids, ghosts, and fairies to spells and poems mentioning stones, the book

makes entertaining reading and a lively resource for storytellers, though Dunlop neglects to include sources for the folktales. A paperback original for larger collections. Carolyn Phelan
