Midwinter Folk Tales, Paperback / softback Book

Midwinter Folk Tales Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In this enchanting new book, one of the country's most celebrated storytellers has gathered together traditional tales that have their roots in the cold and long, dark nights of midwinter.

Herein you will find magical accounts of the Legend of Tinsel, the Christmas Cat and the New Year's Bell, with a number of wintery riddles to unpick while enjoying the festive season and welcoming in the New Year.

With so many folk tales intrinsically linked to ancient seasonal customs, there are a few included here relating to traditions such as the Ottery St Mary Tar Barrels (Devon), the Viking 'Up Helly Aa' (Shetland) and Tom Bawcock's Eve (Cornwall).

This is a book to curl up with in front of an open fire on long winter nights and to share and retell over a steaming mug of mulled wine.
