    " A good read; it's a collection of vignettes that Yeats collected from the countryside of Ireland. "

    " A great collection of folklore, especially tales of the now oh-so-hard to see, but none the less interesting 'little folk'. "

    " Yeats compiled these stories from various Irish hillbillies in the 1890s. I am a lover of all things Celtic as well as a lover of folklore, local legends, ghost stories, faerie lore, etc, but surprisingly I just didn't get sucked into this book like I thought I would. "

    " A short edition of encounters with fairies. A much easier to consume and move on resources than The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries "
