An encyclopaedia of plants in myth, legend, magic and lore

by Stuart Phillips | 01 January 2013
Hardback
A collection of the stories, folk tales, and legends relating to plants Whereas at one time these folk stories might have been passed on from parent to child as a way of teaching something of the natural world, many are now largely forgotten-yet they are an important part of our folk heritage. Wherever possible, a complete a list of common names is given for each plant in this book. These names are as much a part of the plant's folklore as the myths surrounding it and they also serve to show where the myths and lore relating to one plant may, at some point in the past, have been attributed to another plant with the same common name. This collection works as both a "dip-in" book for items of interest and a comprehensive guide to the use of plants in art, literature, and common customs.
