Their origins lost in the oral tradition, these 30 stories from Dorset reflect the wisdom (and eccentricities) of the county and its people. Dorset has a rich and diverse collection of tales, from the stories of some of Britain’s most famous mythical heroes, to tales of demons, dragons, boggarts, and sniddlebogs. These stories, illustrated with 25 line drawings, bring alive the landscape of the county’s rolling hills and Jurassic coast.
