WE CAN ORDER THIS FOR YOU (store pickup in 5-14 days)


In a time of increasing interest in native wildlife, this collection of British and Irish folk tales will rekindle a sense of wonder in the animals that we once took for granted. Stories and animals have always traveled along the routes determined by migration, habitat, and trade. These in turn have been affected by changes in climate, weather, and the affairs of humankind. Through our heritage of charming, quirky, and profound traditional tales, you will be reacquainted with once familiar fauna. Perhaps you will be reading, for the first time, stories of those creatures that have, in living memory, made the British islands their home. You will also be in the company of those, which once long gone from these shores, have recently reclaimed their right to roam.
