Some species mentioned in the Bible can be found on our shores too, whereas some of the plants mentioned in the Bible, we may find ourselves using in the kitchen.

I wanted to create a book that would be useful to the whole family. Children can look up the quotations to learn how to use their family Bible and adults can enjoy the wildlife content. It has a foreword very kindly written by Professor David Bellamy.
