Spirit Roads free pdf What is a ghost path? What is its sinister association with death, and why might fairies use it? These are intriguing questions, and Paul Devereux's answers to them are even more remarkable, opening as they do the doors - quite literally, 'of perception' - onto a previously unimagined world, and one all but lost to the modern psyche. 'Spirit roads' are found all over Europe. In the UK, they appear mainly as corpse ways or church paths - routes that were used to convey the dead to burial in medieval times. But they also have a secret history of other spirit attributes. Some are supposedly haunted- others have been associated with special kinds of seership. In Part One, a series of chapters presents background information on a range of routes displaying various 'Otherworldly' qualities. Part Two offers a close-up look at these various routes with a sampler containing 55 examples of all the various kinds of 'Otherworldly' routes.
