Derbyshire Folk Tales, Paperback / softback Book

Derbyshire Folk Tales Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Passed down from generation to generation, many of Derbyshire's most popular folk tales are gathered together here for the first time.

Ranging from stories specific to the region, such as 'The Derby Ram', to others which are local versions of well-known classics, like 'Beauty and the Beast', all of the tales in this collection are rooted in Derbyshire's past.

Written to recreate the oral traditions that made these anecdotes popular, this book provides entertainment for all. Richly illustrated with original drawings, accounts of love, loss, heroes and villains are all brought to life through vivid descriptions that have survived for several centuries.

These tales have been adapted to make them accessible, enjoyable and, at times, very relevant to contemporary readers.
