Mermaids are not always found in the sparkling waters of the deep blue sea. Sometimes you find them inland: in lakes, streams, and even in swimming pools. The Mermaid of Druid Lake is about such an inland dwelling water nymph who coaxes two gentlemen into taking her for a joyride around the park. Sweet, humorous, and delightfully Edwardian this 1906 classic tale will delight lovers of the merfolk and folklore alike.
