CLIP - Brother Peter has been educated in the Low Countries and has visited the Conti- nental centers of learning, studying physical science and watching experiments in the laboratory of more than one famous chemist. He therefore departs in a blind fury on what he regards a child's errand of gathering and compiling the fables of a halfwcivilized people who believe in dragons and the like, But before the time allotted for his jour- ney is half over, Brother Peter begins to change. After all, he realizes that these tales. distasteful as his more sophisticated mind had found them, did bring saints nearer to the unlearned folk to whom they were familiar. The saints who shed, were in- terested in gardening and lived a life such as their clients understood, feathered angels like seagulls, and devils who played pranks upon the unsuspecting, were all within their ken. Withm the framework of Brother Peter s adventures are a number of stories worth telling; they make up the Guide-n Legend of Cornwall. Added interest lies in their telling by a variety of people ( shermen, shepherds, children, priests, housewives) in a variety of styles. The stories are still told in Cornwall and the author's treatment of the legends and the people who tell them is modern, or rather timeless. Seller Inventory # 010590
