It is a large collection of traditions, which map and capture the rich folk tradition of Kythnos.

And as usually happens in our island societies, the narrowness of the place is compensated by the breadth of history. The traditions of this book contain many historical traditions, among which the pirate traditions occupy a special place, quantitatively and qualitatively. In these short narratives, the popular oral memory and the oral history of Kythnos are vividly captured: fairy-tale and hagiological origins, stories with narrative cores that go back to the Byzantine years, or even to late antiquity, but also events that were imprinted in the collective memory, always through the lens of popular storytelling, and with the rules of oral history.
