Old Warwickshire had many iconic historic sites: Coventry, Rugby, Warwick, Kenilworth, Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham to name a few. A sense of the past permeates even the very names, but behind the history, and equally fascinating, are the stories of the ordinary people who lived in the greenwoods and rolling hills of this ancient heart of England. Here are the folk tales, passed from teller to listener over centuries, and here too are the legends that grew up around the county’s famous sons and daughters. Read stories about Shakespeare and also about Robin Hood; of Coventry’s Lady Godiva and also of that city’s claim to Saint George; and of the witch who, alone, saved England. Storyteller Cath Edwards retells these tales and more with verve and vitality and illustrates the book with original drawings.
