    Discover where faeries and other mythical creatures are hiding in our modern, urban environment with this beautifully illustrated guide to uncovering magical beings.

     

    Like every other being in our world, fantastical creatures have been forced to adapt to the climate, industrial, and cultural changes of the modern era. Countless formerly common creatures including akeki and cave trolls have been driven out by urban sprawl and climate change while others, like ether sprites and brownies, have been able to thrive in abundance, creating homes in city environments.

     

    Featuring descriptions of magical creatures from around the globe, this encyclopedic collection details the history and adaptability of more than fifty different species of fae. Within these pages, you'll learn about:

     

    The History of the Land of Faerie and who you might find there
    Immigration's Effect on legendary creatures, who often travel with us when we move
    The Native Species of the Americas, including the Thunderbird and wendigo
    The Impacts of Climate Change and Conservation, and how you can help preserve these mythical creatures
    And Beginner Tips for Fae-Spotting, including safety tips for interacting with fae​

     

    Combining scholarship with modern lore and environmentalism, and featuring stunning hand-drawn illustrations, Finding Faeries is a captivating look at the fantastical beings that inhabit our world today.
