The Dreamhunters and other legends and studies by Dorothy Carrington

"Get away from here before you're completely bewitched and enslaved..." Dorothy Carrington (1910 - 2002) was told.
But enslaved she was. She arrived in Corsica in 1948 as an English historian. She stayed.
She was very interested in Corsican society, Corsican culture. In 1991 she was awarded a doctorat honoris causa by the University of Corse.
She lived and worked in Ajaccio. She also had a very special friendship with I Muvrini.

TerraCorsa is very proud and grateful that Dorothy Carrington and later on her heiress, has given so kindly and willingly her personal permission to Yvonne Peters to publish from her books, also on this website.

If you like to enter the mystical world of Corsica, TerraCorsa proposes several legends and studies:

Jean-François BERNARDINI wrote in his book UMANI:

"Chère Dorothy Carrington

Vous êtes un peu partie

Comme si désormais
vous écriviez derrière une autre porte
dans un temps qui n'est plus le nôtre
mais òu l'on sera toujours libres
de vous imaginer."
