Description
One of our oldest and most universal cultural forms, fairy tales express our sense of wonder or fear through the symbolic use of woodlands. Over the course of a year, Sara Maitland visited a dozen European forests, and here offers her thoughts on how they shape such stories. Along with Adam Lee's black and white photographs, Maitland also includes some ecological speculations, as well as her own retelling of such Brothers Grimm tales as "Rumpelstiltskin," "Snow White," "Rapunzel," and "Little Red Riding Hood."

"[Maitland's] research is diligent, her analytical skills sharp, and her prose lean and compelling.... The argument she makes for a connection between the woods and the fairy tale is a convincing one and so finely constructed that this odd marriage between fiction and essay proves successful and thought-provoking."Publishers Weekly
