Islanders and Water-Dwellers contains 27 articles which explore Celtic, Nordic and Baltic legends, tales, songs and beliefs concerning supernatural beings of sea, river and lake.
By collating and investigating such materials on a comparative basis, scholars from Denmark, England, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Scotland and Sweden show how folklore can provide insights into the workings of creative culture at its most enduring, and probably also at its most humanizing level.
