Page 54 - Old Hag': The Nightmare Tradition Reexamined.

This meant that stories were usually referred...
Page 52 - ... she fixed things for us! The very same day we lost a goat. It fell over in the field and was dead instantly. A memorat collected in Swedish Lapland illustrates the same response, although in this instance what is coveted by the visitor is not food or shelter, but a newborn calf (Campbell 1933:140): Old Stina was a dangerous woman. She came to my grandmother's cow barn to help her with one of the cows that was having a calf. Stina really wanted that calf; but she did not get it. A few weeks later...
Page 23 - One of the consequences of the ciftlik regime, slowly established in one area after another between the end of the sixteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century...
