Elves and fairies populate the folklore of practically every time and culture. This book focuses on the European fairy tradition, laying out details about elves and fairies powers, looks, homes, habits, and personalities. It also examines human/fairy interactions and explains traditional ways for people to safely manage these encounters. These beliefs and the tales that generated them have inspired countless fictional treatments and pop-culture phenomena. From Tolkien's elves to Tinker Bell, fairies of all types continue to work their magic on modern audiences.
