Shadows between trees: Extravillan in contemporary legends

Contemporary legends are sometimes considered to be an "urban" phenomenon, but not all of them actually take place in a city. The book Stíny mezi stromy: Extravilán v současných pověstech ("Shadows between trees: Extravillan in contemporary legends“) focuses on such recent stories that contain motifs typical for folklore and that are situated to sites outside permanent settlement areas, for example forests, castle ruins, caves or old quarries. It attempts to present various motifs typical for such stories and explain their origins.
