About This Book

Gwent teems with stories of magic and strange transformations above and below ground. To tell them afresh, Storyteller Christine Watkins has searched out sharks teeth in the longest cave, chased the dog of darkness through a maze of mountain mist, and salvaged a wisewoman's ironstone from the river... Christine was born in New Inn, in the house where her mother and grandmother were born, on a street her forefathers helped build. She grew up listening to a clutch of great aunts whose own tales weave through these new tellings of the county's folk tales. The resulting stories resonate with voices of many kinds.
