A series from Time Life Books on myth, superstitions, and legend, brought to life with beautiful illustrations, and written in a fluid like prose that brings to mind a storyteller sitting by a crackling fire sharing his tales.

I remember reading some of the books in this series when I was younger. I had purchased some through a mail order subscription, but didn't complete the collection, although you can still find them on Amazon, Ebay, and the like. YouTube even has a video of the original TV co

Dit boek geeft een heel goed beeld van hoe mensen leefden in de middeleeuwen, en waarom dat er voor heeft gezorgt dat er zoveel angst ontstond voor spoken en andere wezens. Prachtige afbeeldingen.
