"These stories of animals and saints, taken from the Desert Fathers and the Celtic saints, were first translated and made available by Helen Waddell more than half a century ago. Ester de Waal now introduces these personages to a new audience that will be equally beguiled by the world they evoke." "Readers meet a range of creatures, from lions and hyenas, otters and hares, to a mouse, a fly, and a frog. All creatures, whether they be big or small, beautiful or not, are given their own voices, and, in reading about their relationships with saints such as Columba, Jerome, Cuthbert, and Simeon Stylites, readers are taken back to the early days of the Christian heritage and the holistic spirituality that belongs to that world - a world in which miracles are commonplace and Christian legend comes to life."--BOOK JACKET.
