This book is an exploration of stones in Brittany, with the stories they have preserved in the lively Breton oral tradition. Sites include exceptional natural formations, famous and not so well known megaliths, sacred springs, ruined chateaux, memorial monuments and divinatory rocks. Tales of Druids and saints, giants and fairies construct a narrative of popular imagination at work in the landscape over great swathes of time, but the hard hand of history also leaves a forceful impression in this intriguing text. It is enhanced by illustrations from Alan Montgomery.
