The Traveller's Guide to Fairy Sites

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Gothic Image Publications 2004
Paperback
As new - some general shelf wear, crease to spine, slightly bumped corners. Contains black and white photographs and illustrations throughout.

A traveller's guidebook to the 500+ places in the British Isles where fairies have actually been seen offers a new angle on the very popular subject of fairies. Most of the stories are not about the pretty winged fairies from children's picture books, but visit the actual sites where fairies have been seen and, perhaps, may be seen today. This well-regarded author, known for her scholarly research, offers accurate details on how to get to the sites; first-hand sighting reports and strange accounts of fairy sightings, traditional and modern; a guide to the different types of Little People, from Pixies to Leprechauns; many illustrations, engravings, drawings, photographs and maps. This is Fairy Lore for intrepid or armchair travellers, but it is most definitely not for the faint-hearted, as many of the stories can make your hair stand on end.
