Devon has a long and rich folkloric heritage and this book consolidates more than a century of research by eminent Devon folklorists into one valuable study. The first major work on Devon's folklore since Ralph Whitlock's short book published by the Folklore Society in the 1970s, this volume brings the subject into the twenty-first century, with chapters covering the history of Devon's folklore collecting, tales from the moors, the annual cycle, farming and the weather, the devil, fairies, hauntings, black dogs, witchcraft and modern lore.

This will remain the standard work for many years to come.
