Abstract

The oral storytelling traditions of the British Isles have connected people to the land and to their plant and animal neighbours for centuries. This collection brings together story wisdom from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland that speaks to the heart of humanity’s relationship with nature. Whether it’s traditional stories about native birds and animals or tales of living in harmony with the landscapes we call home, there’s something here for everyone who believes that a more beautiful world is within our reach.
Richly illustrated with thirty original drawings, these enchanting tales will appeal to everyone interested in nature and in environmental conservation and will be enjoyed by readers, storytellers and listeners time and again.
