Description

When David Thomson took a journey to the sea coasts of Scotland and Ireland to seek out the legend of the selchies – mythological creatures who transform from seals into humans – a magical world emerged. Men were rescued by seals in stormy seas, took seal-women for their wives and had their children suckled by seal-mothers.

Timeless and haunting, The People of the Sea retains its spellbinding charm and brings to life the enchanting stories of these mysterious creatures of Celtic folklore.
