Reek Roon a Camp Fire

A Collection of Ancient Tales
by Stanley Robertson - Find out more about the author
‘Fascinating glimpses into the world and heritage of our travelling community,’ – Scots Magazine

In Reek Roon a Camp Fire, Stanley Robertson takes the reader on a journey of wonder with a collection of authentic Traveller tales – from fairy folks to supernatural happenings and tales of everyday life – designed to initiate the non-traveller populace into the wonderful events and secret happenings that are an elementary part of the lore of the Travelling People.

Stanley Robertson was born into a family of traditional Travellers, the twelfth of thirteen children. A well-known ballad singer, he sang at major festivals around the world, including the Commonwealth Games Festival in Edmonton and The Smithsonian festival at Washington DC. As a storyteller, he performed at every major story festival at home and abroad. Stanley died in August 2009.
