From the beginning of time, we have sought to explain the world we live in, particularly by telling stories, writing verses, following superstitions and performing rituals. "Natural Lore" looks at how we have used nature to try and understand our environment and ourselves, and examines the science and reason behind it. Each entry explores the origins of sayings and evaluating their effectiveness. Is there any truth behind them? Should shepherds take note of a red sky at all? Does an apple a day keep the doctor away? Do April showers bring forth May flowers? This book will also feature 'dates for the diary' running throughout the text, based on some traditions and beliefs associated with nature throughout the year. It features mono woodcut illustrations and line drawings throughout.
