Then you are a high school student? And where is "here?"
. I have looked for Celtic Books and have found NONE.
Then Bruce's advice on inter-library loan should be helpful. Although any
reference librarian could have given you the same information.

There is no harm. But people's "stories" are not adequate for a paper in
mythology. This group is quite legendary, but we have not yet become mythical.
Now about that comment that "...hasn't paid a bit

That comment referred to:
"I have some resources that I got off the
internet.. but they are sort of hard to understand which is true of most
stories unless heard by word of mouth. "
What DO you mean by "hard to understand ... unless heard by word of mouth"
As a "straight A" student have you acquired all of your knowledge by lecture
and none by reading?

I don't recall ANYONE suggesting you go out and BUY books.

Listen, Kerry Elizabeth: I don't believe I was rude in any way to you. If
you want stories from listmembers, you have received some. I have disagreed
with the wisdom of providing you such stories when you will STILL NEED TO
LOCATE BOOKS TO CITE. I am sorry, but expressing my opinion here is my
right, as it is yours.
I *direct*ed comments to you immediately after your first post. They were
NOT rude. And if one of us IS being rude, I believe it is you.

Well, after you've located a book or two, I suggest you write again asking
about myths you have located. That is the point at which list members might
be useful. You deserve as much of a break as any other student. No less.
