Sara Maitland has tapped into the soul of this country; the need for trees and stories. It is a wonderful personal guide to some of the great woods of this island, but it also explores faerie tales in a modern way. We all need stories, we all need the insights they offer. I love this book and am so glad I have it as a tangible book not an e-book as I will go back to it. I have started giving it as presents as well - a sure sign a book has touched me.
