Book Description:

"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)
