From cautionary tales and amusing anecdotes to age-old legends and fantastical myths, a broad range of folk tales from this proud region are showcased here. Within these pages are tales of legendary rocks, Robin Hood, tragic love affairs, thwarted villainy, witches, fairies, hidden treasure and much more. The intriguing stories, brought to life with beautiful line-drawings by a local artist, will be enjoyed by readers time and again.
