"Amazing stories about our superstitious forefathers and ancestors and how their fears still effect us today. Did you know that the little people followed the Scots and Irish to America and that almost everything that transpires at today's weddings and funerals is based on old superstitions? This book will give you an insight, not only into a bit of our unknown heritage, but also into what makes you tick."
