The Middle Kingdom! Various times and peoples have given it different
names. To some it was Paradise, to others Tir-nan-Og; Arthurian Avalon;
Fairyland; the World of Immortal Youth; the Land of Heart’s Desire.
Where exactly is that country? Well, if God’s is the world of creative
power and ours the world of created objects, the fairy world is the land
of life that lies between them, serving as the bridge for their
interaction. The fairyland and its denizens have long been the concern
of poets, painters, and storytellers. Not only are these beings charged
with the maintenance of Nature’s household but with her evolutionary
plans as well. Our recognition of them and their work helps their
efforts prosper and helps the earth be carried forward in its evolution.
Marjorie Spock draws aside the veil obscuring the life of the “Little
People” and makes their magic world come alive for us. Included are
color paintings of the four races of Little People: Undines (water
spirits), Gnomes (earth spirits), Sylphs (air spirits), and
Fire-Spirits. This is a delightful and engaging book!
