Samenvatting

From stone-throwing Cornish giants to a haunted Northumberland mine, from the ghostly Mistletoe Bride of Oxfordshire to the 'bloody hand' in a Kent church, here are the myths, legends and supernatural stories that have been passed down through the generations all over England. Containing tales of fairies, hobgoblins, spectral huntsmen, black dogs, bogey beasts, screaming skulls and clanging bells, as well as real and mythical figures such as King Arthur, Robin Hood, St George, Boadicea and Dick Turpin, this is a magical journey through England's legendary past. Generations of inhabitants have helped shape the English countryside - but it has profoundly shaped us too. It has provoked a huge variety of responses from artists, writers, musicians and people who live and work on the land - as well as those who are travelling through it. English Journeys celebrates this long tradition with a series of twenty books on all aspects of the countryside, from stargazey pie and country churches, to man's relationship with nature and songs celebrating the patterns of the countryside (as well as ghosts and love-struck soldiers).
