Botanical Folk Tales by Lisa Schneidau
The islands of Britain and Ireland hold a rich heritage of plant folklore and wisdom, from the magical yew tree to the bad-tempered dandelion. Here are traditional tales about the trees and plants that shape our landscapes and our lives through the seasons. They explore the complex relationship between people and plants, in lowlands and uplands, fields, bogs, moors, woodlands and towns.
Suitable for all ages, this is an essential collection of stories for anyone interested in botany, the environment and our living heritage.
