I am currently reading a book titled "A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk" by Edain McCoy. I have read the first 3 chapters and like it quite a bit. It has an introduction to Faeries and 3 main sections: (1) All About the Little People; (2) Working with Faery Beings; and (3) A dictionary of Faery Folk of the World (230 Faeries!). If you own the Fairy Ring Oracle you will definetly want this book.

jewel, are you listening, dear?
My copy of this book came in the mail yesterday ~huge grin~ looks really interesting. It is next on my reading list as soon as I am done with the Faery Folk book, which has been quite interesting so far.

I would be interested in a synopsis of the plants they talk about in this book. I have a large property with tons of gardens. Are you able to give a brief list of plants please?

Thanks

Oh,found some more.A VERY beautiful book called "The World of Faeries" by Gossamer Penwyche,with pictureres reminding you of "The Fairy Ring" and Gendron Tarot.Stories with morals about twety-nine fairies(not a fairy-tale book for little kids).I didn´t like that a wicked story about Morgan le Fay,(my favourite) ,was included though.But I do recommend the book.
Now,"How to Catch Fairies" by Gilly Sergiev tells the true story about Morgan le Fay,(but I wouldn´t dare try"catching"fairies,certainly not a Kelpie!).The information on the fairies is very good though.
There also is a very good encyclopedia called "The Book of Faeries" by Francis Melville,with some recommendations on how to make contact too.It is illustrated,fun,and small enough to carry with you.Lots of information there.

I forgot the novels"The Wood Wife" by Terri Windling(a must read),and the great classic "Little,Big" by John Crowley(a "tarot" deck gotten from the faeries is also involved).
For children and the young at heart;read "A Midsummer Night´s Faery Tale",and "The Winter Child" by Terri Windling and Wendy Froud(she makes wonderful faery-doll illustrations).A lot of "faery" way of thinking in those stories,good for adults too.

Some faerie books I like:

Believing in Faeries - a Manual for Grown Ups, by Marcia Zina Mager. Great illustrations, quite poetic, and a lot of useful stuff to do if you want to be more open to the faerie realm.

Fiction: The Infinity Concerto, by Greg Bear. Great story about a boy who is transported to the fairy realm. Not fluffy at all! There is a sequel to it: The Serpent Mage. Not as good as the first book, but still a great read. They are available in one volume, too, which is called Songs of Earth and Power.

Hedera.
