The Fabled Coast
Legends & Traditions from around the Shores of Britain & Ireland
Along the shores of the British Isles legends and traditions flourish: sailors' yarns and the songs of sirens, mythical beasts and mystical islands, drowned cities with tolling bells and ghost ships on Goodwin Sands. With erudition and engaging enthusiasm, the renowned folklorists Jennifer Westwood and Sophia Kingshill retell the stories heard along the English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish coasts, and explore their imaginary geography, fantastic zoology and historical origins.
