Relish again Darby's unwilling sojourn among the Good People (fairies and leprechauns); his friendship and feuds with King Brian; his famous battle of wits with the Leprechaun; and his terrifying encounter with the banshee. Plus, discover what Disney left out: how the Little People were expelled from heaven and why they chose Ireland as their home; and not to be missed is the delightful account of Father Cassidy's conversion after the good priest has his own face-to-face encounter with the Good People.
No wonder when these tales first appeared, the Boston Transcript raved over their "delicate fairy fantasy, rollicking sense of humor, and gay and dashing imagination." If you are of Irish descent, or just love Ireland, or love leprechauns, you owe it to yourself to read this collection of delightful tales.
