About This Book

This unique collection of folk tales from Cumbria were collected as fragments that the author has had to breathe life back into. From the lore of the land to ghost stories, fairy stories, tales of the ‘oak men’, and the true historical tales that inspired many of the famous and haunting legends of Cumbria’s wild landscape, no chair by the fireside is complete without it. These tales will make you want to visit the places where they happened and meet some of the characters who told them to the author. Taffy Thomas, MBE, is the first laureate for storytelling. He lives in Grasmere.
