Description

These lively and entertaining folk tales from one of Britain's most ancient counties are vividly retold by local storyteller Kirsty Hartsiotis. Their origins lost in the oral tradition, these thirty stories from Wiltshire reflect the wisdom of the county and its people. From the Giant's Dance to the famous Moonrakers, no stone is left unturned to discover the roots of the county. Discover Merlin's trickery, King Alfred's bravery, along with dabchicks and the Devil, the flying monk of Malmesbury and the ravenous maggot of Little Langford. These tales, illustrated by the author, bring alive the landscape of the county's ancient barrows, stone circles and rolling hills. Kirsty Hartsiotis has been a professional storyteller for over ten years. She is a member of the storytelling company Fire Springs, with whom she has co-produced many shows. With a lifelong love of folklore and history, she has a particular interest in telling stories for the heritage industry, in which she's worked for fifteen years interpreting history for wide audiences.show more
