Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Spriggans are legendary creatures known from Cornish faery lore. They are particular to West Penwith in Cornwall. Spriggans were grotesquely ugly, found at old ruins and barrows guarding buried treasure and generally acting as fairy bodyguards. They were also said to be busy thieves. Though usually small, they had the ability to swell to enormous size (they're sometimes speculated to be the ghosts of the old giants). Certainly their disposition was poor, and they caused mischief to those who offended them. They sent storms to blight crops, and sometimes stole away mortal children, leaving their ugly changelings in their place. There is a story of an old woman who got the better of a band of Spriggans by turning her clothing inside-out (turning clothing being as effective as Holy Water or iron in repelling fairies) to gain their loot.
