Overview

A Peep at the Pixies, or Legends of the West
by Anna Eliza Bray

Dartmoor described.--The Pixies said to make it their Haunt.--What they are supposed to be, and what they do.

IN this most pleasant part of England, the county of Devon, we have many hills and rivers, with plenty of woods, and fields, and birds, and flowers. And we have a large tract of country called Dartmoor, where the hills are so high that some of them are like mountains, with a number of beautiful sparkling streams and waterfalls, and a great many rocks, some standing alone, and others piled on the top of the heights in such an odd way, that they look like the ruins of castles and towers built by the giants in the olden time, and these are called Tors; they are so lofty that the clouds often hang upon them and hide their heads. And what with its being so large and lonely, and its having no trees, except in one or two spots near a river, Dartmoor is altogether, though a wild, a very grand place.

Meet the Author

"Anna Eliza Bray (December 25, 1790 - January 21, 1883) was a British novelist.

She was the daughter of Mr J. Kempe, and was married first to C.A. Stothard, son of Thomas Stothard, R.A., and himself an artist, and secondly to the Rev. E.A. Bray. She wrote about a dozen novels, chiefly historical, and The Borders of the Tamar and Tavy (1836), an account of the traditions and superstitions of the neighbourhood of Tavistock in the form of letters to Robert Southey, of whom she was a great friend. This is probably the most valuable of her writings. Among her works are Branded, Good St. Louis and his Times, Trelawney, and The White Hoods: an Historical Romance.
