Finding Faeries: Discovering Sprites, Pixies, Redcaps, and Other Fantastical Creatures in an Urban Environment

by Alexandra Rowland Author

An illustrated guide to modern fairies and where to find them all over the world. Includes an introduction to fae lore and various ways the wee folk might contact you (via email, at the library, or on a visit to a ghost town, for instance). Then meet mercurial mythological (or are they?) beings, from the Huldufolk bedeviling Icelandic industry to evil Boggarts to the faeries known to live at Chernobyl, as well as spirits indigenous to the Americas, Africa, Europe, and Asia that may still be at work and play around us today.
