The Traveller's Guide to Fairy Sites

by Janet Bord - £12.99  Gothic Image Publications (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780906362648 | ISBN 10: 0906362644

This is a guidebook to over 500 places in the British Isles where fairies have actually been seen.
Concentrating on places that are identifiable and able to be visited today, the sources drawn on range from traditional folklore to modern first-hand sighting reports. The entries give precise locations, usually including Ordnance Survey map references.
All the different types of Little People are represented. They are mostly not the pretty winged fairies that appear in children's picture books. "Real" fairies can be frightening.
By reading these stories and travelling to the fairy sites, the reader will gain a sense of what it is to inhabit that Otherworld of the fairies.
This is a call to get up and explore the Fairyland that is all around us.
