    Description

    The mysticism and fairy folklore of Celtic England, Scotland, the Isle of Man, Brittany, and Wales is explored in this production, which focuses on interviews conducted with everyday citizens about their beliefs, sightings, and encounters in the early 20th century, followed by an anthropological examination of evidence. It is an exploration of the spirit world, of the Sidhe, the "good people", who are claimed to interact mischievously with the populace - sometimes even abducting them and leaving only the victims' clothes behind, transporting them far distances, and killing their livestock.

    A great eye witness primer of the world of fairy!

    This collection of eye-witness account of fairy was written by a friend of W. B. Yeats, W.Y. Evans-Wentz. Rather than pull his material from books, Evans-Wenz toured England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland and discovered rich and charming first hand accounts of humans finding Fae in their ordinary worlds. Terrific narration by Jack Chekijian who also is the narrator of the W B. Yeats collection, The Celtic Twilight, also available through this platform.

    Chapter numbers are WRONG

    Chapter numbers are WRONG. Readers voice is scratchy. Not high quality at all in my opinion.

    Very detailed accounts and history

    In depth study of fairy folklore and even claimed sightings of fairies in Celtic countries. Fascinating and plainly written.

    Charming and Spooky Tales From the Celtic Lands

    I have this book in printed form, and had flipped through it here and there. Lots of interesting Celtic examples of fairy tradition but not much narrative. It's more of a travelogue, collecting stories as the (American) author moved from Ireland to Isle of Man to Wales to Scotland to Cornwall to Brittany.

    But having heard and deeply enjoyed this narrator Jack Chekijian's reading of Yeats' "The Celtic Twilight," I gave this book a listen and it's just a tremendously soothing, deep performance. You can fall asleep to it, or you can be enthralled by daylight. (I listened to some on a long drive through the countryside and it enjoyed it immensely.)

    Not captivating

    Good concept but takes forever to get to the point. Narration not too bad but story lacks
