Inhaltsangabe: The ancient kingdom of Mann has many unique charms, from its steam trains and horse trams to the world's oldest unbroken parliamentary democracy. However, the island is also home to a rich gathering of legends and present-day mysteries. Where else in modern times would you find a UFO crash on a mountain-top alongside precautions to ensure that the present British monarch paid homage to strange beings that live under a bridge? This book brings you the adventures of the Fenoderee, who created the world's first crop circles. The fearsome moddey dhoo that terrified castle guards. Plus dozens of other amazing cases - including the most bizarre twentieth-century poltergeist story on record. Even the island's creation myth is steeped in the supernatural. Whether following these weird tales from the comfort of your armchair or using the book's visitor friendly features on an actual trip, you will find that wonder and mystery are alive and well just 60 miles off the British shores. "Supernatural Isle of Man" is the most informative and up-to-date account of this magical island.

Buchbeschreibung I.B.Tauris & Co. Ltd. Jul 2017, 2017. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Beyond its housing estates and identikit high streets there is another Britain. This is the Britain of mist-drenched forests and unpredictable sea-frets: of wraith-like fog banks, druidic mistletoe and peculiar creatures that lurk, half-unseen, in the undergrowth, tantalising and teasing just at the periphery of human vision. How have the remarkably persistent folkloric traditions of the British Isles formed and been formed by the psyches of those who inhabit them In this sparkling new history, Carolyne Larrington explores the diverse ways in which a myriad of fantastical beings has moulded the nation's cultural history. Fairies, elves and goblins here tread purposefully, sometimes malignly, over an eerie landscape that also conceals brownies, selkies, trows, knockers, boggarts, land-wights, Jack o'Lanterns, Barguests, the sinister Nuckleavee and Black Shuck: terrifying hell-hound of the Norfolk coast with eyes of burning coal. Ranging from Shetland to Jersey and from Ireland to East Anglia, while evoking the Wild Hunt, the ghostly bells of Lyonesse and the dread fenlands haunted by Grendel, this is a book that will captivate all those who long for the wild places: the mountains and chasms where giants lie in wait. 264 pp. Englisch.
