5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best book on the Green Man I've read 18 Aug 2000
This is a well researched book, heavily illustrated with wonderfully clear photographs. I found it to be a fascinating and educational read. The author traces the image of the Green Man in all his many forms (and even includes a Female version) from the dark ages to the present day. If you want pretty pictures you'll find plenty here, but equally of value is the absorbing text.

I really enjoyed the book. Learned how the Green Man is connected to the cathedrals I love in Europe. I am becoming an avid gardner and how found this book powerful and informative.
