Old Warwickshire, the ancient heart of England, encompassed many iconic historic sites. Coventry, Rugby, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham, among others, all had tales to tell. Equally fascinating are the stories of the people, the virtuous and the villainous, who lived in the greenwoods and rolling hills of this celebrated county. Here are the folk tales passed from teller to listener over centuries, and the legends of the region’s famous sons and daughters. From Lady Godiva and Dick Turpin, to the murderous Foxcote Feud and Coventry’s claim to Saint George, storyteller Cath Edwards retells these tales and more with verve, vitality and vivid original illustrations.
