The Druids used the Ogham Tree Alphabet to work magic and honor the dead. Poets and bards created a secret sign language to describe this alphabet, which was transmitted orally for centuries to protect its secrets. In this in-depth look at the history and spiritual aspects of the sacred trees of this ancient alphabet, Ellen Evert Hopman examines the therapeutic and magical virtues of the 20 trees of the alphabet and reveals their traditional uses in Native American medicine. She explains Forest Druid practices associated with each tree as well as Druidic spiritual practices, herbal healing remedies, and plant lore for each tree in the alphabet.
