The Shifty Lad, as his name suggests, had a way with him about escaping from tricky situations. In these delightful and amusing tales of roguery and cunning, we learn about his childhood, how he longed to become a thief, and his career among the villains of the highways and byways. Then we find out how the Shifty Lad escaped a terrible fate and saved his life through the gift of telling stories, and how it all worked out happily in the end. These tales come from the Celtic cultures of these islands. Perhaps they are not particularly Welsh, Irish or Scottish, the author says, but a part of our wider human heritage, as are all tales that touch our feelings, strike a note of sadness in us, or make us laugh.
