Shining A Light on Folklore Hidden Within the Breathtaking Landscape of Britain's Peak District
Mark's passion for the Peak District has driven him to traverse its length and breadth, collecting both folktales and photographs. Each tale in this anthology reflects the diverse landscapes and communities, from the dark moorlands of the north and the southwest, to the limestone hills and valleys of the centre, and the gentle slopes of the Dove and Manifold valleys in the south.
"Some of the stories are short, some are longer; some are funny, some are tragic; some are fantastical, and others, such as the story of John Nadin, are historical events that have captured the public imagination and become oral tales," says Mark, highlighting the diversity of tales within the collection. "Some are quite well-known, at least in some versions, but others are obscure and are seldom if ever told; hence the title of this anthology."
Fantastic Books Publishing CEO, Dan Grubb, expresses his pleasure at publishing this remarkable collection, stating, "I was delighted when Mark came to us with this collection of folktales. He is a natural raconteur and much in demand at storytelling gigs. It's a fascinating collection, not just for the stories themselves, but for Mark's photographs and the background he provides for each tale."
Elusive Folktales of the Peak District is an immersive journey into the heart of folklore, offering readers a glimpse into the region's cultural heritage and its enduring storytelling tradition.
