Haunted England: A Survey of English Ghost Lore

'Some of tales here retold are well authenticated.. others are mere country tales handed down from generation to generation, or confused memories of fairy tradition or pagan belief now reclothed, in a newer, Christian dress. But they all have one thing in common. All have been told or believed by the people or England.. and reveal something of the English mind.'
