Fairies are small winged, human-like creatures with magical powers. The existence of fairies has long been documented in eyewitness accounts, folk tales, art and literature. Fairies were once widespread in Europe and North America but have become increasingly rare since the advent of industrial agriculture and the urbanisation of their natural habitat. Fairies are thought to have reached North America unnoticed on the boats of the early colonists. In 1691, one reliable witness, the Reverend Robert Kirk, Minister of the Parish of Aberfoyle, Scotland, described fairies as "of middle nature between Man and Angel, as were Daemons thought to be of old; of intelligent fluidous Spirits, and light changeable bodies (lyke those called Astral) somewhat of the nature of a condensed cloud, and best seen in twilight. These bodies be so pliable through the sublety of Spirits that agitate them, that they can make them appear or disappear at pleasure"[1]
