Overview: Lachie MacLachlan, the generous hero of this enchanting tale, is the exception to the rule that the Scots are a thrifty lot. In his "wee house in the heather," Lachie lives with his family of twelve, and he welcomes to his hearth every weary traveler who passes by on a stormy night. "There's always room for one more," says Lachie, and how his grateful guests say a wonderful "thank you" provides a delightfully warm and tender ending to this hilarious tale of kindness. The story, derived from an old Scottish folk song, is reflected superbly in the charming illustrations of Nonny Hogrogian

5 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten stories from old Scottish folk songs tell histories and local legends in the voice of the peopleMany Scottish ballads tell stories of adventure and danger, trickery and wit, valiant nobles and passionate romances. But to the natives of Scotland, the best ballads have often been those that speak of ordinary people playing the parts of heroes. Writers of ballads stretched their imaginations to bring life to tales that happened long ago, and the stories were passed down from generation to generation as oral retellings of local Scottish history and myth. By Loch and by Lin presents exciting tales such as those of the harper who tricked a king, the dove that became a prince at night, and the beautiful lass who was stolen from her true love. In stories from ancient folk songs, this collection weaves a colorful tapestry of Scottish lore
