About This Book

This is a collection of folk tales takes you on a green and leafy journey around the British Isles. Here are locally sourced and traditional folk tales of the wild trees and plants that surround us through the seasons: from the magical mistletoe to the bad-tempered stinging nettle. Plants shape our landscape, and they give us food, medicine and inspiration – yet in the middle of our hectic lives, we often take them for granted. Our traditional stories, passed down the generations, tell of the complex relationship between people and plants in Britain, in lowlands and uplands, coasts, bogs, forests and towns.
