This book takes you back in time when people believed and lived their lives on wild spring plant foods. I read this series of books years ago and wondered what happened to then. I put the total set on my wishlist, buy two or three at a time, and archive them. If you are interested in people who believed, followed, and lived folklore, you would enjoy these books. Each one is different. Some were very interesting in content and some were not to my liking. The fact that I was trilled to find them and purchase them again might say something about the books.
