  Welsh Fairy Tales and Other Stories (FULL audiobook) by P.H. Emerson These tales were collected by me whilst living in Anglesea during the winter With the exception of the French story. The Welsh, like other Celtic races, love a good story. From the time of the Mabinogion and the Black Book of Carmarthen welsh folk have passed dark winter nights in front of roaring fires and entertained with mythical stories. Welsh Legends and Myths is a compendium of traditional myths, Welsh fables, Welsh fairy tales and real stories.

Fairy tales are stories in which occurs something 'fairy', something extraordinary--fairies, giants, dwarfs, speaking animals, or the remarkable stupidity of some of the characters. Stories of fairy interaction with humans – where the kind and thoughtful are blessed and the thoughtless and spiteful are punished. Welsh Fairy Book: Bala Lake This story tells the origin of Bala Lake in Wales, a large lake that is four miles long and one mile wide. Note the Bible quotation from Proverbs "As a roaring lion and a ranging bear, so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.".
