When it comes to folklore and mythology, what springs to mind are rnplaces like Greece, Romania, England and other European countries, rnwith their stories and images of Gorgons and Cyclopes, Vampires, rnDragons and Faeries... But what about Canada? rnrnCanada has a deep and varied folkloric heritage based upon the rnlegends, myths and stories of the numerous Native nations who lived rnin Canada first, that were built upon by each successive wave of rnimmigrants from all over the world. The French brought tales of flying rncanoes, the Devil, and little goblins who took horses out for joyrides; rnthe Germans gave us conjure doctors; the Italians the weather rncontrolling folletti; the Russians the household sprites called domivye... rnrnFor more than ten years, amateur folklorist Todd H. C. Fischer has rnresearched hundreds of creatures, monsters, strange locales, heroes rnand spirits from all across Canada, collecting them here, for the first rntime, in one comprehensive volume.rn
