This unique fairy tale filled with whimsy and satire is much more than a story for the nursery. The tale begins with 2 old philosophers who live in a dark pine wood with their companions the Grey woman of Dun Gortin and the Thin Woman of Inis Magrath. When the wife of farmer MacMurrachu loses her washing board, the farmer comes to ask the philosophers for advice. They direct the old farmer not to a washboard, but to a tree containing a pot of gold. Discover what happens as the story unfolds, as it wanders like a winding Irish country road through a charming landscape of mysterious, plain, mortal, and immortal creatures.
