Traditions and Hearthside Stories of West Cornwall Vol. 2
Free download available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook formats. Skip down page to downloads.
This is the second of three volumes of William Bottrells' collection of Cornish folklore, legend and local tales. This volume includes several episodic stories, particularly the generational saga of the I'ans. While many of the folk-tales have thematic correlations in other story-telling traditions, all of these stories are localized by Bottrell in the Cornish landscape, including tales of giants, ancient castles, and strange standing stones.
This book has 383 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1870.
