Rate this:
These lively and entertaining folk tales from one of Britain's most ancient counties are vividly retold by local storyteller Janet Dowling. Their origins lost in the oral tradition, these 30 stories from Surrey reflect the wisdom (and eccentricities) of the county and its people. Discover the places in the Surrey landscape where dragons walked, horses flew, and fairies spirited away those who had transgressed. Read about how the devil was outwitted by an old woman, a dream that brought fame and fortune to a real live benefactor of Guildford and London, and even some flying pigs!
