Ceredigion is a land shaped by mythology, where mermaids and magic mix with humans and where ordinary people achieve
extraordinary things. This is a captivating collection of traditional and modern stories, including the submerged city of Cantre'r Gwaelod, or the `Welsh Atlantis', how the Devil came to build a bridge over the Rheidol, the elephant that died in Tregaron, and how the Holy Grail came to Nanteos. All the while the tylwyth teg (the Welsh fairies) and changelings run riot through the countryside. Storyteller and illustrator Peter Stevenson takes us on a tour of a county steeped in legend, encountering ghosts, witches and heroes at every turn.
