For over four decades, John Shaw has been documenting Cape Breton’s Gaelic traditions. The Blue Mountains presents thirty stories recorded between 1964 and 1989 including popular tales such as The Dragon Slayer, hero-tales of Fionn MacCumhail and his warrior band, stories of robbers and thieves, comic tall tales, historical legends, and accounts of clan traditions brought over from the western Highlands. Shaw provides both the Gaelic texts and an English translation. The Blue Mountains and Other Gaelic Stories from Cape Breton showcases a unique and neglected storytelling tradition.
