These lively and entertaining folk tales from one of Britain's most ancient counties are vividly retold by local storyteller Tim Laycock. Their origins lost in the oral tradition, these thirty stories from Dorset reflect the wisdom (and eccentricities) of the county and its people. Dorset has a rich and diverse collection of tales, from the stories of some of Britain's most famous mythical heroes, to tales of demons, dragons, boggarts and sniddlebogs. These stories, illustrated with twenty-five line drawings, bring alive the landscape of the county's rolling hills and Jurassic coast. Tim Laycock is a professional storyteller and musician who has been working with traditional folk tales, stories and songs for over thirty-five years.
