Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Welcome back one of the most revered introductions to the lineage, appearance, general characteristics, and case histories of seventy-nine elf folk, including White Ladies, Red Caps, Church Grims, Hobgoblins, English Fairies, Leprechauns, Sirens, Hey-Hey Men, and all of their strange and mythical kin.

For many years, this charming illustrated guide has been as elusive as a Will-o'-the-Wisp. This is the first opportunity for elven fans to once again own an English language edition--featuring more than eighty new illustrations by Sabrina the Ink Witch.

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

Synopsis:

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. 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. Featuring more than 80 new illustrations

If your only exposure to elfin lore is "The Lord of the Rings" or "Grimm's Fairy Tales" then you need to read this book and get educated! Nancy Arrowsmith's classic work on the fairy folk of Europe is delightful-- and disturbing, too. The Little People,interestingly enough, often reflect the human culture of their lands. Who came first? We suspect the fairy folk did.
