Book Description

13 May 2013 Folk Tales
Norfolk is steeped in story. Whether we are treading fields, fens, beaches or streets, the landscape is pregnant with secret histories. The collective imagination of countless generations has populated the county with ghosts, saints, witches, pharisees, giants and supernatural beasts. Stories have evolved around historical characters, with Horatio Nelson, Oliver Cromwell, Anne Boleyn, Tom Paine and King Edmund becoming larger than life in folk-memory. This book is a celebration of the deep connection between a place and its people. For thirty years Hugh Lupton has been a central figure in the British storytelling revival. He tells myths, legends and folk-tales from many cultures, but his particular passion is for the hidden layers of the English landscape and the stories and ballads that give voice to them. He has written poetry, several collections of folktales, and one novel, The Ballad of John Clare. He lives in Norfolk.

This book is well made and feels good to hold. The tales are told in a lively manner, with good background for students of folklore. Hugh Lupton writes as he narrates live. We need more books like this. Perfect.

An excellent collection, well presented, of tales from this intriguing and ancient county.
Hugh Lupton needs little introduction, well known in this genre, this book will make fascinating reading,
and a great stocking filler for christmas, or as a birthday present

Folk tales as folk tales should be with a personalised touch from an experienced, expert story teller. Could only be bettered by hearing Hugh Lupton telling them live.
