The haunted mountain book.

The Haunted Mountain was mine. Mollie Hunter is amazing! This novel captures the imagination, the spirit of the Celts, their traditions and superstitions, and a land that thrived before the harshness of modernity drove out the sidhe and put an end to the Goodman's Croft. MacAllister is a wonderfully wrought protagonist, and his struggle with the fairies is vivid, full of adventure. There are elements of magic, love, lore, and sacrifice woven expertly throughout Hunter's novel.

Mollie Hunter's The Haunted Mountain takes the Sidhe very seri ously, as you would expect of an author who makes her home in a remote Highland cottage. The story is a powerful synthesis of legend and actuality. Mollie Hunter keeps to them, and the result is an authentic spellbinder of a book, an al legory of modified good over coming a sometimes pitiable evil. It is worth mentioning al so that The Haunted Moun tain is very much a told tale, full of the accent of burn and brae, its prose sweet with the speechrhythms of the Scottish Highlands, elusive as the sting of peatsmoke on the wind.

We have heard of fox-hunters, of deer-hunters, of bear and buffalo-hunters, of lion-hunters, and of ‘boy-hunters;’ of a plant-hunter never. Stay! Truffles are plants. But even in England the calling of the plant-hunter is far from being one of recent origin. It dates as early as the discovery and colonisation of America; and the names of the Tradescants, the Bartrams, and the Catesbys – true plant-hunters – are among the most respected in the botanical world.

Was disappointed with the quality of books available for my kids ages 7 and 9 and looked for books i read as a child that were fun and clean. Was pleased to find Haunted Mountain for them. It has a great mix of adventure, fantasy, mystery, and fright that is perfect for kids. Also found new publications of 'Me and Caleb' and 'Me and Caleb Again', both great books for young boys. Book was as promised as far as condition.

I have always enjoyed fantasies that include the Irish folklore and this one is one of the best.

Macalister prides himself for his land and also for his love of Peggy Ann (American spelling). He has decided that he will not give up the Goodman's croft to the "good people." Everyone around has told him not to mess with the Sidhe (the Shee as in banshee)--they are magical creatures that can harm a person and make spells.

Since he did that, the Sidhe are after him--they send magical beasts to take what they believe is theirs and finally try to kill him as he travels to see Peggy Ann. In the end he is captured by the Sidhe.
In the end will Fergus (his son) rescue him or will Macalister be lost forever.

Anyone that is into Irish folklore should read this book. It is a bit old but still a good read

The Haunted Mountain is a half-good, half-bad book. Mollie Hunter mixes ideas of Celtic mythology with children's dreams. This fantasy takes place in a small town in the north of Scotland during the Celtic times. This story is filled with mythological characters from fairies to urisks, which are half man half goat. This fantasy is about a stubborn farmer named Mc Allister. He promises himself that he will never give the fairies his traditional piece of land. Throughout the story the fairies have tried several attempts to kill him. They finally capture him and make him their slave. It is up to his brave son Fergus to save him. I was quite disappointed in this book because the reading level was quite low. The characters were unrealistic and it was more a fantasy book than a horror story. Personally I prefer horror stories to fantasies. If you like fantasies, castles, and romance, this is and ideal book. If you're more like me and love horror stories, I don't suggest this book.

In the Scottish Highlands, in the glen where MacAllister lives, it has always been the custom to leave a piece of land called the "Goodman's Croft" for the use of the sidhe, the fairy people. But MacAllister has fallen in love with a pretty girl called Peigi-Ann, and decides to plow the Goodman's Croft along with the rest of his land in order to make a good enough living to marry her. He thereby brings on himself the wrath of the proud sidhe, but being a stubborn man, he vows that if he cannot use the land, neither shall they. MacAllister, and later his wife, son and even their faithful hunting dog Colm, must call upon all their wit, courage and humanity if they are to prevail against the various magical attacks of the vengeful sidhe.

The story reads very much like an extended fairy tale, so any child or adult who enjoys reading fairy stories should like this; indeed, it's kind of a treat to read such a long and well-fleshed-out fairy tale. Mollie Hunter is an excellent storyteller; not only does she capture the beautiful and frightening strangeness of the sidhe and their magic, but also makes her loveable human (and animal) characters - stubborn MacAllister, strong Peigi-Ann, the mysterious Skeelie woman, brave Fergus, faithful Colm - come alive for the reader, and their warm human moments of joy and sorrow and triumph and humor and love provide a grounding for all the weird and wonderful happenings. Most of her books seem to have gone out of print, which is a shame, but if you should happen to come across one, do give it a try.

Only true bibliophiles will understand when I ask: Do you remember those books that touched you when you were young? Those that simply spurred you to read further and become a genuine book lover? The Haunted Mountain was mine. It was a book that I read and promptly lost, and couldn't for the life of me remember the author's name or the title! It was a labor of love trying to discover this book for the second time! After countless internet searches I have finally found it! Mollie Hunter is amazing! This novel captures the imagination, the spirit of the Celts, their traditions and superstitions, and a land that thrived before the harshness of modernity drove out the sidhe and put an end to the Goodman's Croft. MacAllister is a wonderfully wrought protagonist, and his struggle with the fairies is vivid, full of adventure. There are elements of magic, love, lore, and sacrifice woven expertly throughout Hunter's novel. This book is an absolute jewel!

Like one of the previous reviewers, this is a book I read as a child. Read many, many times in fact - it was one of my absolute favourites. Recently, my seven-year-old son started asking about fairy tales, so I dug around and found a copy of this so we could read it together, and we both loved it! It's still every bit as charming as I remember it. This is a true classic, a book which, for me, has stood the test of time.

The Haunted Mountain is the book I read. This book is about a man named MacAllister who owns many acres that the "Sid he" kept ruining. MacAllister marries a women named Peggy Anna and has a child name Fergus. Something really bad happens to MacAllister and someone has to save him! Read this book to find out what will happen. I thought this was a very good book. I would highly recommend this book.

Took me a long time to find this -- couldn't remember the author's name or title. I read this when I was about 10 years old, back in the 70s, and I always remembered it. It was my first introduction to some of the real concepts of Irish Fairies -- particularly the Sidhe.

I don't know whether it will stand the test of time for me now, but I'm looking forward to re-reading it some 30 years later...

(I also read and loved her book The Walking Stones.)
