"This is a popularized treatment of the folklore of Brittany, the Celtic region on the north-western coast of France, Spence, who wrote a number of other books in this series, recounts tales of knights, kings and saints, some more or less historical in nature, others set in the timeless land of the fairy-tales. Brittany also has extensive lore of fairy-folk, including several unique species, such as the Korrigan, Nain, Goric, and the dread Ankou, a female spirit of death. In addition, Brittany is the setting (and possibly the origin) of some of the Arthurian tales, particularly those of Tristram and Percival. One of the rarer of Spence's books, Legends and Romances of Brittany is an enjoyable read in spite of the sometimes grim subject matter." (Quote from sacred-texts.com)

Brittany (Breizh) occupies a large peninsula in the northwest corner of France, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south. It is one of the six Celtic Nations, the others being Cornwall (Kernow), Ireland (Éire), Isle of Man (Mannin), Scotland (Alba), and Wales (Cymru). In each of these regions the Celtic languages and cultural traits have survived to this day. In 1917, noted folklorist Lewis Spence first published this amazing collection of fairy tales and legends of the Breton people. Chapters include: The Land, The People, and Their Story; Menhirs and Dolmens; The Fairies of Brittany; Sprites and Demons of Brittany; World Tales in Brittany; Breton Folk Tales; Popular Legends of Brittany; Hero-Tales of Brittany; The Black Art and Its Ministers; Arthurian Romance in Brittany; The Breton Lays of Marie de France; The Saints of Brittany; and Costumes and Customs of Brittany. Myths and Folk Tales of Celtic France will surely delight fans of Celtic myth, magic, and tradition, as well as anyone who likes a good folk story.
