Field Guide to the Little People

$26.99

A Curious Journey into the Hidden Realm of Elves, Fairies, Hobgoblins and Other Not-So-Mythical Creatures

Nancy Arrowsmith

Description

In high summer meadows, nestled in the moors, near old castles, or behind the kitchen stove—these are the places where the Little People may be found.

Make the acquaintance of White Ladies and Red Caps, Church Grims and Hobgoblins, English Fairies, Leprechauns, Sirens, Hey-Hey Men, and all of their strange and mythical kin. Become wise in the ways of these magical creatures, some beautiful and benevolent, others cunning, menacing, or morose.

Featuring more than 80 new illustrations

Praise:
“Rationalists, materialists, be forewarned: the ancient forces governing earthly incident and momentum lie neither in our heads nor our economics, but, rather, in the revelations from A Field Guide to the Little People.”—The New York Times
