Jane Pugh – When the Devil Roamed Wales

I found this book when searching for similar folklore-related books in my local university library. The author’s name was familiar to me (she has written other books about folklore and legends of Wales), so I thought it was worth seeking out. Ostensibly it’s a children’s book, given the colourful, humourous front cover and story illustrations, though some of the subject matter is pretty morbid for younger readers. Nonetheless, I haven’t yet found another book that deals solely with the idea of the devil in Welsh folklore, so for now this will have to do.
