Spirits, Fairies, Gnomes, and Goblins: An Encyclopedia of the Little People examines both the races of Little People, such as angels and encantados, and individuals, such as Tom Tit Tot and Maggie Molloch. More than 2,000 alphabetically organized entries list the being's popular name, region of origin, and physical description and tell the story of its relationship to humans. With its meticulous system of cross-references that connects similar beings from different cultures and periods, the book is an essential aid for students, folklorists, authors, and anthropologists. Appendixes list Little People by region and type, and more than 100 black and white illustrations bring them exuberantly to life.
