The Book of Ballads – Charles Vess

I was at a fund-raiser and a woman—I think her name/nickname was Rocky—gave me this book which she won. Wherever you are, Rocky, thank you, but when I finally got around to reading this collection of British Isle ballads illustrated by Vess, I was disappointed. Perhaps if I were Celtic, as so many people think I am, the stories would have more meaning for me.
