EXCERPT:

Once on a time there was an old beggar-woman, who had gone out to beg. She had a little lad with her, and when she had got her bag full, she struck across the hills towards her own home. So when they had gone a bit up the hill-side, they came upon a little blue belt, which lay where two paths met, and the lad asked his mother’s leave to pick it up.

‘No’, said she, ‘maybe there’s witchcraft in it’; and so with threats she forced him to follow her.
