Summary
This book is not the usual herbal; not a homeopathic handbook, a cookbook or a gardener's consort; not even a compendium of history or lore, though these are its favourite pursuits. At heart, it is a tale of humanity's poignant relationship with nature. Told in short vignettes, profusely illustrated and sprinkled with personal asides, it touches broadly on the role of plants in legend, in religion, in medicine, commerce, crafts and tradition, in literature, language, politics, beauty, in the rise and fall of empires, in food and manners, in love, in murder, and in crushing social passions.
