Whether hailing from the open Yorkshire Dales or the close-knit neighborhoods of its towns and cities, North Yorkshire folk have always been fond of a good tale. This collection of stories from around the county is a tribute to their narrative vitality, and commemorates places and people who have left their mark on their communities. Here you will find dragon slayers, boggarts, and giants, tragic love affairs, thwarted villainy, witches, fairies, ghosts, and much more. Historical characters drift in and out of the stories, strangely transformed by the mists of legend; Dick Turpin, St. Hilda, General Wade, St. Oswald, Mother Shipton, and Ragnar Hairy Breeches—characters as rugged and powerful as the landscape they stride. These intriguing stories, brought to life with over thirty illustrations, will be enjoyed by readers time and again.
