Gooise Legenden (Paperback)

Gooise Legenden (Paperback) - Henk de Weerd A decent collection of folktales from the Gooi area of the Netherlands. Mostly legends, but both pagan and christian ones, as De Weerd is an author quite enamoured of the Germanic/romantic interpretation of some folktales. This does little for the authenticity of most of these, but it does make for pleasant reading by adding a mythological touch.
