Kindle Edition

Faeries, trolls, goblins--are these simply creatures of age old stories or are they much more? Legends of these Little People are universal across time, geography and cultures. Are the origins of these stories connected to a real race of tiny humans such as those found on the Indonesian island of Flores or to some other ancient and unknown cause? Sightings of these creatures continue to be reported in our modern time from Europe and Russia to North Carolina and California. Are these reports the result of mis-identification or hallucination or are we in fact sharing the world with a number of beings from a lost age? The Folklore of Faeries, Elves & Little People - A Study of a Cultural Phenomenon looks cross-culturally at the history and folklore of these creatures as well as current areas said to be frequented or inhabited by them and gives possible explanations for the continued belief in their existence. Illustrated
