by Daphne Charters (Author), Michael Pilarski (Editor). Offers readers of all ages an incredible view into the lives of 34 intelligent fairies. True fairy tales told by the fairies themselves. Plant fairies live wherever there are plants, even in the cities. In 1950, Daphne Charters who lived near the edge of a town in England began to see the fairies who lived in her neighborhood. Eventually Daphne became their good friend. Daphne had ongoing friendships with these fairies for forty years. Over the years Daphne worked with 34 individual fairies from two groups of nature fairies and one group of house fairies. The fairies told Daphne about their lives, their exploits, their work and their spiritual development. Daphne wrote it all down. The Collected Fairy Manuscripts of Daphne Charters are one of the great, fairy literary treasures of the twentieth century. Hitherto these manuscripts have been available to only a few. Daphne's writings offer one of the most intimate looks into the lives of the fairies available today.
