Treasury of Folklore: Woodlands and Forests | Dee Dee Chainey
From the dark, gnarled woodlands of the north, to the humid jungles of the tropics, trees have captured humanity's imagination for millennia. Filled with ancient gods and goddesses, tree spirits and the fairy tales of old, the forests offer sanctuary, mystery and more than a little mischievous trickery. From insatiable cannibalistic children hewn from logs, to the spine-chilling tale of Baba Yaga, there is much to be found between the branches. Come into the trees; witches, goddesses and big, bad wolves await you.
With foiling details on the cover and sturdy bindings, these hardback titles from Batsford are beautifully library additions.
