Publisher's Summary

The subject of fairies in Celtic cultures is a complex one that seems to endlessly intrigue people. What exactly are fairies? What can they do? How can we interact with them? Answering these questions becomes even harder in a world that is disconnected from the traditional folklore and flooded with modern sources that are often vastly at odds with the older beliefs. 

This book aims to present listeners with a straightforward guide to the older fairy beliefs, covering everything from Fairyland itself to details about the beings within it. The Otherworld is full of dangers and blessings, and this guidebook will help you navigate a safe course among the Good People.

Educational and Informative

Okay hear me out. If you're a skeptic that is looking for an anthropological / sociological disection of broadly Celtic folklore relating to "The Other Crowd" you've come to the right place. This is exceptionally well-researched, in addition to being an easy listen/read.

Morgan's writing is not dense, nor does it talk down to you. She writes with authority and humor, and leaves the reader with a sense that she is inviting you in.

I recommend this book both for the accademic and the pagan, there's something in here for the curious and inquisitive. Near the end she does talk about her own experiences with the good folk and as a practicing pagan, but that in no way taints the research she's done, simply adds a bit of flavor.

Fantastic Information!

Morgan Daimler does it again! I absolutely loved this one! Great I formation for anyone wanting to work with, or not not work with the Goodfolk. The narrator was a bit draggy, but speeding up the reading helped. Thank you for another fantastic resource.
