About Allison Galbraith
Allison is a storyteller and folklorist. Her first collection of folktales, Dancing With Trees, Eco-Tales from the British Isles, (co-written with Alette Willis) are the stories she tells in environmental places, including Woodlands Community Garden, where many of the stories were crafted and shaped with the help of the audiences. Allison loves being amongst trees, hanging out with animals and skipping up and down hills, that's why she lives in the Clyde Valley. Allison's inner nerd enjoys visiting places of historical significance and then rooting about archives, libraries and talking to anyone who might share their stories and wisdom. She is currently collecting and writing the folktales of Lanarkshire for the History Press. You can find out more about Allison and her first book here : www.restoryingtheearth.com
