These stories were collected between 1962 and 1986 in many parts of the Midlands, North and Scotland from Gypsies and other Traditional Travellers. The families who told them included the Cannings, Finneys, Jameses, Northern Lees, Maughans, Millers, Mullens, Prices, Shaws, Smiths, Taylors, Townsleys and Wards. Stories like these were told round the fire to entertain and to teach young people life lessons and, in bleak times, to give hope. Find out which animals help Jack, the miracle of the stone, the young man who gets everything wrong, the king's haircut, the king's semolina and just where Aunt Hilda's land is. Many more stories too! Ideal for young children - and older ones - in a variety of situations including home and school, play schemes, play buses and after school clubs etc.
