Mother Earth or Earth Mother is Mother Nature. She is the goddess that our Stone Age ancestors revered until she was supplanted by the more powerful male gods that began shaking things up a bit at the beginning of civilisation around 6,000 years ago in Mesopotamia. The goddess still played an important role in the human endeavour but her power was greatly diminished and she was always second best to the ruling Godhead.

Here are to be found practical household hints, remedies and family recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, some still existing in the form of treasured journals and notebooks. There is nothing fanciful or far-fetched about this information - in fact, The Secret People is a remembrance of times past and a preservation of ‘parish-pump witchcraft, wise woman and cunning ways’ adapted for use in the 21st century and urban lifestyles.

Fairies are a challenging subject, intertwining culture, folklore, and anecdotal accounts across centuries and millennia. Focusing primarily on the Celtic speaking cultures, with some material from adjacent cultures including Anglo-Saxon and Norse, /A New Dictionary of Fairies/ has in-depth entries on a variety of fairies as well as subjects related to them, such as why we picture elves with pointed ears or where the idea of fairies being invisible comes from. It also tackles more complicated topics like the nature and physicality of the fairy people. Anyone with an interest in the Good Neighbours will find this book a solid resource to draw from.
