Somerset Faeries and Pixies - Exploring their Hidden World is a witness to the survival of faery beliefs in the 21st century: a series of interviews with Somerset people who willingly share their recollections and experiences of encounters with the Little People, and spin a few old tales too. 'Now, both the windows began rattling and banging together, and numerous hands and nails scraped and thumped at the door. Footsteps could be heard, as creatures scuttled and leapt round the cottage seeking access.' Prepare to be amused, bemused and terrified - the faeries are out there! These are not Victorian whimsies, but real faeries - the pixies of Somerset, beings of the orchards, woods, seashore, hearth and threshing barn. Author Jon Dathen is a folklore researcher whose previous books include: Ogham - Wisdom of the Trees, Somerset Cider - Folklore and Customs, and Practical Palmistry.
