Hard to Find


The cultural phenomenon of "fairy houses" crafted solely from available natural materials apparently originated spontaneously on a few Maine islands, and in recent years, these charming, wee shelters made from leaves, moss, twigs, stones, bark, shells, feathers, and other found items have caught the imaginations of parents and children everywhere. Fairy Houses of the Maine Coast showcases outstanding examples of the miniature homes and delves into the history and folklore associated with garden and woods fairies.
