About This Book

THIS selection of thirty fairy tales and legends from the deepest corners of Herefordshire reflect the wisdom of the countryside and its people. There are strange happenings in the peaceful county, formed from early attempts to explain the natural and spiritual world, as well as dark tales of revenge resulting from clashes on the Welsh Borders. From the Saxon king of East Anglia who became the patron saint of Hereford Cathedral, and the story of the black hound of Hergest Court which inspired Arthur Conan Doyle, to a medieval love story, these gripping tales have stood the test of time, and remain classic texts which will be enjoyed time and again by modern readers.
