    This book made me reconsider the way I think about the past. It made me realize how important it is not to cut yourself off of it completely, but rather view it as something that shaped you and no matter how tough or sad your past was, there is no need for trying to forget it altogether. It is what supports us as we go on with the new chapters in our lives. The important bit is to not let the past define us.

    Leafy Pleasures If you like trees and you like folklore this book contains plenty to entertain and charm you. There is a chapter on seventeen trees indigenous to the British Isles, many of them common in the rest of Europe (you can see which ones by using the 'look inside' feature). Each chapter contains botanical information about the tree, sections on the legends they have inspired, the healing and magical properties traditionally associated with them, and the customary uses for their wood - fr Leafy Pleasures If you like trees and you like folklore this book contains plenty to entertain and charm you. There is a chapter on seventeen trees indigenous to the British Isles, many of them common in the rest of Europe (you can see which ones by using the 'look inside' feature). Each chapter contains botanical information about the tree, sections on the legends they have inspired, the healing and magical properties traditionally associated with them, and the customary uses for their wood - from walking sticks to ships. The book's focus is on Anglo-Saxon and Celtic legends (although it does include references to Greek myth and others); the illustrations, although nice, are not sufficient to identify the trees if you don't know them already; as a couple of reviewers have mentioned, it is not a 'definitive' guide or encyclopaedia - if, indeed, such a thing could exist for this subject matter. It is full of beguiling stories and nuggets, however, for those who like the romance of the greenwood tree, and the whole charming effect is a bit like going for a stroll in the woods with a well-informed and chatty - some would say batty - friend.

    This is a really fantastic book on tree lore. I was using it to study Ogham and the wisdom of the grove. There are also a lot of wonderful pratical workings and customes contained in this book.

    There's much to like and much to find annoying about this book. It contains a combination of botanical facts (helpful) and insightful neo-pagan thought (good) and herbal medical advice (okay, sometimes dodgy) and undocumented scrambles of historical claims (frustrating). It's the sort of book which should be read with a bowl of salt handy (for taking pinches) and/or a 'citation needed' stamp. That's not to say it shouldn't be read: the meditations on connectedness with the natural world, support There's much to like and much to find annoying about this book.

That's not to say it shouldn't be read: the meditations on connectedness with the natural world, supported by accurate observations about real trees and the author's personal experience, are well-written, sometimes excellent.

    I used this like a bible to find a myth, folklore/ legend around trees to ignite a spark for me to look further and develop narrative poems for my MA dissertation. Highly recommend it.
