Ewan Colin Coupar and a Touch of the Fae

In a new take on old tales, Carl R. Peterson combines fact, folklore, and fantasy into a story featuring a cast of Rockkin, Elves, Brownies, and Urisks, among other faerie folk, who mingle with humans in our own world. These encounters result in children, who have a "touch of the Fae" through bloodline or other connections, coming together to form the Cruach. The book cover shows the Cruach Cradle in the hills behind Greenock where the nine children often gather for meetings with the Druid priests, Surston and Winthrop, and sometimes with the minister Mr. Gillanders.
Little do they know that sinister forces are at work, seeking to steal the secrets of the past and the ancient knowledge of the Fae. Can Ewan and his friends put a stop to their malevolent plans?

Now’s the Day and Now’s the Hour by Carl Peterson

A unique collection of history and music that connects the spirit and the background of the Alamo defenders to Scotland. From the beginning of Scotland's freedom wars, with Wallace and Bruce, we see the trend carried forward to the Texas and the Alamo. With piper John MacGregor and the fiddler of the Alamo the men's spirits were maintained with the music of Scotland that contained a history of a fighting spirit. These songs were then used as the tunes for ballads and stories written about the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. This Texas freedom fight has its roots in Scotland's freedom wars.

"This is a noteworthy contribution to the history of the Alamo, the people of Scotland and the powerful American folk music that evolved from the melding of the two. Carl Peterson writes in an easy, conversational manner based on thorough research about the forces that brought the Scots to the New World and shaped their contributions to the growth of the United States."
