FairiesBook - 2010
Fairies are among the most popular figures in mythology and folklore as stories about them exist in almost every culture around the world. Appearing under many guises from the familiar tiny, winged people to balls of light, fairies are often portrayed as spiteful and mischievous. Though often associated with childhood interests, fairies are celebrated by people of all ages through stories, songs, dances, and festivals. ""Fairies"" explains the folklore and mythology of fairies, but it also presents fairies as real beings who exist in their own realm and have genuine interactions with human beings. Some people believe it is possible to see fairies, and simple techniques for opening up this enchanted realm are described. The book also looks at major fairy hoaxes and frauds and examines the connections between fairies and the UFO phenomenon. The chapters include: The Mysterious Origins of Fairies; Where Fairies Live; Fairy Powers; Bad Fairies; Changeling; and, How to See Fairies.
