about this item

Once covered in forest, marsh, and fen, yet lush with farmland, Bedfordshire has been hit by wave after wave of invaders, each bringing their own tales which have become rooted in the oral tradition of storytelling. Scratch under the surface and you will find settlements of ancient Britons razed to the ground and ruined castles. The landscape rings with the stories of robber barons, conniving highwaymen, and lonely women condemned as witches, characters brought to life here by noted storyteller Jen Foley. Richly illustrated with 30 unique drawings, these enchanting tales tall and true, ancient and recent, powerful and fantastical, will appeal to young and old and can be enjoyed by readers time and again.
