About this book

Discover the folklore and history of our most malignant, toxic plants. Poisonings are among the most memorable deaths in history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Concealed and deliberate, it is a crime that must be planned in advance. And yet there is a fine line between healing and poisoning – Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!

In Botanical Curses and Poisons, Fez Inkwright – author of Folk Magic and Healing – returns to folkloric and historical archives to uncover historical uses and the fascinating, untold stories behind deadly plants,witching herbs and fungi. Beautifully illustrated by the author, this treasury of folklore is packed with insight, lore and the revealed mysteries of everyday flora, perfect for gardeners, writers, folklorists, and general knowledge buffs alike.
