On the mountain lord so high
Well he drove so hard he broke his poor heart
And he layed down his hammer and died
Laid down his hammer and he died"
Nelson took this story and traced the threads through history, reading and researching hundreds of songs and stories.
His conclusion is chilling and fascinating at the same time. What started as a idea in his head turns up with an unmarked grave holding 300 men. It is a forensic case history that was fascinating from the first chapter. It is a quick read disguised as a picture book but well worth the read. I guarantee you won't look at legends and myths the same way you did before!
