The Fairy Faith in Nova Scotia

The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries is one of the background books to the Pagan revival, sort of like Rudyard Kipling's Puck of Pook's Hill. Graham Harvey and I included some of the Kipling in The Paganism Reader; perhaps we should have included Evans-Wentz too, although I admit to always being a little unsure how to interpret the word "faith" in his title.

The Fairy Faith is also the title of a new video on fairies. A Flash version of the trailer is online. I did like the Eskasoni, Nova Scotia, episode.

The link came from a Colorado Springs Wiccan priestess who said, "I am currently doing research on the Fey preparing to teach a section on working with them to my students..."

Certainly the older Indian woman in the video clip had no interest in "working with." She thought it was wiser to give the fairies a wide berth.

UPDATE: The Paganism Reader gets a five-star review.
