    "Talk to your plants," they say. That's nice for people with a strong affinity for plants, but what about the rest of us? I don't do so well with plants, power animals and all the non-human powers of nature. I *am* good with people though. That's what I like about this book the most. Other than a decent summary of medicinal virtues, brief overview of folklore and traditional charms, it's a book for looking at plants as people you can talk to. Strange people, no doubt, but people all the same. Raven gives us his own experience of talking to these plant spirits, their personality, likes, dislikes, areas of expertise, what they look like, sometimes with a drawing of that spirit, and a charm for every single one of them. Not that I expect they'll look and act exactly the same to me as to him, but it's a good start, like a personal introduction to a new friend. Even by limiting it to Northern European plants and only a page or two per plant, this book is still a brick at 312... More > pages for those 150 plants. It doesn't have all the plants I'm interested in, but hey, if I can use that help to get to know these, I can probably manage to talk to the plants on my balcony too. I don't intend to be some great herbal healer. I just want to make some new friends among the plants that surround me. I like having friends in low places, you never know when you'll really need them. As a Pagan, that's important to me. And as someone studying the "shamanic" aspects of the Northern Tradition, having at least some green friends is a good idea. It's nice to have a book that shares personal gnosis, and gives us all some encouragement to go out and get our own. It doesn't tell me everything I want to know... but it tells me how to find out for myself. Can't ask for much more than that from a book.< Less
