Lore of the Wild delves into traditional nature folklore from around the world, revealing the influence of trees, plants, insects, birds, animals and weather on daily life.

See nature in a whole new light with this enchantingly illustrated treasury of natural folklore and wild wisdom from around the world. Did you know that people used to believe that rabbits’ ears would twitch in the direction of a thunderstorm? That lily of the valley flowers were formed from fairies’ drinking cups? And that taking dandelions into the house would make you wet the bed? Traditional nature folklore can help us understand how our ancestors interacted with the world around them and allows us to view nature from a new perspective. Brought to life with bright, folk art-inspired illustrations, discover the lore of:

– An array of different animals, birds and insects
– All types of flowers, plants and trees
– The weather, sun, moon and stars
– Good and bad omens, and lucky charms

Lore of the Wild inspires appreciation of different cultures, as well as an engagement with the beauty of the natural environment.
