Shropshire Folk Tales (Folk Tales: United Kingdom) by Amy Douglas

In places Shropshire has traditional patchwork fields and hedgerows, in others small villages and market towns with black and white timbered buildings. But it also has places that are still wild, hills where the heather and bracken cling to the rocks while peewits call overheard and strange rock formations jut up to the sky, casting their shadows over the countryside below. The thirty stories in this new collection have grown out of that land: tales of the strange and macabre; memories of magic and otherworlds; proud recollections of folk history; stories to make you smile, sigh and shiver. Molded by the land, weather and generations of tongues wagging, these traditional tales are full of Shropshire wit and wisdom, and will be enjoyed time and again.
