Fairies have enchanted humans for centuries—but are these mischievous, ethereal creatures more than just myth? One could ask for no better guide to the fairy realm than Ralph Harvey, one of England’s foremost modern-day witches. In Simply Fairies he intersperses his own intriguing fairy encounters (among them, a mysterious musical interlude in an Irish valley) with an impeccable, succinct introduction to fairy lore. You will learn the special meaning of roses to fairies and the significance of “elf bolts,” as well as how fairies influenced everyone from Henry III to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Harvey even tells the best ways to seek out fairies (hint: aligning your chakras will help) and how to express gratitude for fairy favors.
