Folk tales from Somerset, especially selected for children by a professional storyteller. When you are in Somerset you are never far from mysterious caverns, whispering woods, hidden valleys and places which can't decide whether they are seascapes or landscapes. The ancient Kings Arthur and Alfred hid amongst Somerset's secretwaterways, waging the wars and making treaties that forged Britain's history. Outlaws and highwaymen lived on the wildest of moors that plummet into the sea. Ordinary people farmed theland and fished the waters alongside the Little People, the Fair Folk, the fairies and goblins that were as tricksy and unchancy to meet as any smuggler... In this collection, professional storyteller Sharon Jacksties has selected and reworked tales for children aged 7 11 to discover. AUTHOR: Sharon Jacksties has been a professional storyteller for over 25 years. She explores the relationship between place and narrative in her courses at Halsway Manor, England's only residential centre for the traditional arts. In 2016 she co-directed a new festival, the Summerlands Storytelling Festival, which spanned the South West. 20 b/w illustrations
