East Yorkshire Folk Tales (Folk Tales from the British Isles)
by Ingrid Barton
East Yorkshire has known invaders and raiders, smugglers and preachers. The earliest inhabitants of Britain chose to live in the high open lands of the Wolds, leaving behind them mysterious mounds and tales of fairy gold. This collection of stories from around the county is a tribute to their narrative vitality, and commemorates places and people who have left their mark on their communities. Here you will find tales of saints and dragon-slayers, thieves, and boggarts, giants, and gypsies; characters as rugged and powerful as the landscape they stride. These engaging stories, brought to life with over 30 illustrations, will be enjoyed by readers time and again.
