Every nation in the world has its own folklore heritage — legends, myths, fairy-tales. In such stories the wisdom of every nation is collected and embodied, although some of the nations have similar tales, especially those who are neighbors. Legend and myths employ elements of supernatural origin: magic, gods, wonderful creatures. Tales are stories that are supposed to teach the coming generations by depicting various situations and various types of behavior demonstrated by the heroes.
The “Death Bree” is an ancient story-legend that tells about a woman lived in the Camp-del-more of Strathavon. All her husbandry consisting of cattle were exposed by some unknown disease and a great numbers of them were dying daily. Some wise people said that it was evidently the effect of some infernal agency, the power of which could not be destroyed by any other means than the never-failing method – the juice of a dead head from the churchyard. It was the only chance for her to rescue the cattle and she decided to run the risk. No doubt – it is one of the astounding stories where death helps life to solve difficulties. Have a nice reading.
