Field Guide to the Little People : A Curious Journey into the Hidden Realm of Elves, Faeries, Hobgoblins & Other Not-so-Mythical Creatures
In high summer meadows, nestled in the moors, near old castles, or behind the kitchen stove‰ÛÓthese are the places where the Little Peoplemay 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.
For many years, this field guide has been as elusive as a Will-o‰_-the-Wisp. This is the first opportunity for fans to once again own an English-language edition of one of the most revered introductions to elf folk ever written.
