Description
Where in Devon can you find the "Devil's footprints?" What—besides the obvious—might have happened at any of a handful of "hangman's stones" dotted around sheep country? Did Sweeney Todd, the "demon barber of Fleet Street," really exist? And where was King Arthur laid to rest? Cataloguing tales of hauntings, highwaymen, family curses, and lovers' leaps, this encyclopedic yet tinglingly entertaining guide will take you on a journey through England's legendary past, illustrated throughout with maps, color photos, and reproductions of art.

"A real treasury.... I'm sure I shall plunder it for years to come."—Philip Pullman

"A fascinating county-by-county guidebook to the headless horsemen, bottomless pools, immured adulteresses and talking animals that make up the hidden landscape of the country."—London Review of Books
