    One thought on “Myths and Legends of Flowers, Trees, Fruits, and Plants”

    1. This book is extremely interesting. It combines botany and mythology with fluent and intriguing storytelling. For those with any interest in mythology, I highly recommend.

    2. The kindle edition is full of typos, and bad formatting, but the book is very entertaining and the author has a dry humor that I found to be very amusing.

    3. Plant lore, early Christian legends, fairy flowers, narcotics and stimulants, plants of ill renown, flowers, trees, fruits and plants in alphabetical order - no index.

    4. Not goodThis is not well written. Hard to read. Disjointed. Needs editing. Waste of money and time.Do not buy.Can I get my money back?
