Why are elves and fairies sometimes encountered as 'good' or 'bad'entities? What makes it possiblefor a human being to see an elf or fairy? How are elves and fairies linked to the ghosts of the dead? These are just some of the age-old questions addressed in this book. Joseph martin uses his personal encounters with nature spirits, as well as insights from the esoteric and folkloric traditions,to provide a 21st Century perspective on the realm of elves, fairies and other such entities. He uses examples from Celtic folklore to deconstruct some of the many myths that have arisen in respect of nature spirits throughout the ages. In doing so, Martin reveals how entities like elves and fairies are inherently linked to the human experience, as well as to the spirit of Mother earth. By showing that nature spirits are entities on a spiritual journey parallel to mankind's, Joseph Martin illustrates how elves and fairies are much more than just the fantastical creatures of myth and legend:
