Plants of Life, Plants of Death
Plants of Life, Plants of Death

by Frederick J. Simoons

The delicate construction of the ecosystem requires every object to have a function that equals more than just "looking pretty" or "tasting good." In Plants of Life, Plants of Death, cultural geographer Frederick J. Simmoons investigates the plants that have legend-based effects of fertility and sickness, as well as those that are considered pure and impure. A thorough study of plants that crosses boundaries of academic discipline and botany, Plants of Life, Plants of Death scrutinizes the social roles these organisms play in different cultures and societies.
