      'Curious Tales of Old East Yorkshire' is a guide to the history, folklore, traditions & social institutions of the old East Riding, arranged in 14 diverse chapters. Anecdotes are included on events, personalities, buildings, customs & domestic matters. You probably know Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Davy Crockett — characters whose larger-than-life stories are part of America's Old West tall tales. But did you know there are also tall tales about women and that other countries have tall tales, too? Share their enduring stories with kids ages in these recommended books about great strength, big adventures, and.

      From Folklore Books to Poetry Books, from Illustrated Childrens Books to Internet Joke Books, you can be sure that with Abela, you will find great books that will truly inspire. Discover historic tales or mythical legends from all over the world. A real opportunity to go on that special voyage of discovery and culture.   The page softcover book, published by Arcadia Publishing and The History Press, draws from the often lurid newspaper accounts of the time, as well as from Berkshire Athenaeum and Library of Congress records and other sources. It contains details of more than a dozen tales of murder, vicious assault.

        From the ghosts of South Hill Park to the tragedies of the Old Manor, Bracknell is a town steeped in mystery and folklore. Recently I was fortunate enough to come into possession of a wonderful little book titled “Berkshire Folk Tales”, the collaborative work of historian Tina Bilbé and self-proclaimed shaman David England. Written in a gothic style, this title is a compendium of curious tales from Old West Yorkshire containing exciting discoveries about the county's most famous and most enigmatic family - the Brontes. All things connected with the strange side to West Yorkshire's heritage are included.
