Plants in Myth & Magic!

In the struggle to achieve mastery over the powerful forces of nature, man has always turned to plants for help-for food, shelter, clothing, weapons, and healing, and even for relief from hardships of life. Plants provide all these and something more: an astonishinh display of vital energy in their growth and seasonal birth. No wonder then that, from the most primitive societies to the most advanced, plants have been invested with magical power. No wonder that so many myths attribute to plants an intimate personal relationship with our daily lives and our destinies!
