    Short sweet and full of local colour Clear on references and editing and a varied bibliography My particular fave was The Woodsman and the Hatchet but I'll always read anything Robin Hood of Barnsdale

    This series is a collection of books by different authors drawing of the local folklore of different areas The South Yorkshire version is a accademic take than some in the range For some of the tales in this collection there is footnote than story This was kind of a turn off as I took the intention of these books to be presenting a selection of folk stories in an accessibly way and I felt the overly accademic take made the story less accessable and also less fun The book also preserves in many cases the original form of telling which isn't great Some of them are told in ways that lack dramatic effect and some are in dialect which is basically unreadable Would have benefited from a high editorial hand for ease of reading

    If you have an interest in the area then this book will undoubtedly bring you joy with various stories set in places that locals have likely visited many times though the tales are weighted towards Sheffield and DoncasterThe tales at the start are in depth whilst towards the end the stories become anecdotal and lasting little than a paragraph in length which can be jarring That said some of these shorter stories are the best in the book the gravedigger was a personal favouriteIf your passion lies in local history and mythology then this book will not disappoint

    uaint and thoroughly enjoyable I'm fascinated by tales that were or are popular thru word of mouth A slow and discerning distillation of what is good about a tale than the blur of badly written and conceived viral drivel that is available now

    Strange mixture of tales The book started well and I enjoyed the sections concerning the early myths Robin Hood Swift Nick and the Wantley Dragon The end chapter was disappointing Overall found the book interesting
