A revenant roams the swamps around Wohlde, witches crouch below Hungergraben’s bridges, and dwarfs row down nocturnal river Hunte in clogs. Manifold apparitions and fabulous creatures inhabit the landscape of the Harpstedt region – if we believe in the legends and myths of Harpstedt, that is: those old tales of murder, curse, and charms, of war and giants’ jousts, of peasants and of noble dynasties, which, once rich and renowned, sank into the remorseless dusts of oblivion.
Historian Bernd Ulrich Hucker now for the first time collects and arranges these long forgotten stories from old sources, volumes, and collections, putting them into their regional historic context. Together with his annotations about their origin and formation, their historic setting and their reception, this book is a treasure chest for the local history of Harpstedt.
