This includes many rare tales from oral tradition originally collected around the world by 19th century ethnologists, missionaries and colonial administrators. Her recent books for adults have explored Viking Age stories, Arthurian legends, British and Irish faery lore and English fairy tales. She is currently working on a major book of Native American myths. Visit her website here.
