About the book:

Are fairies real? Folklorists say they are fragments of ancient religious beliefs; occultists call them nature spirits; the peasant tradition says they are fallen angels. Dr. Evans-Wentz, best known for translating The Tibetan Book of the Dead, presents tradition and testimony about an elusive religious order that survives in the natural setting of wild and lonely places. Not satisfied with formal study, he presents first-hand reports of fairies in Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and Brittany, opening a path to the luminous reality behind the traditions of folklore.
