Mikku and the Trees at Tree Spirit

In preparing for a tree story-walk, I stumbled across a wonderful resource for environmentally-inclined storytellers (and people who simply love trees): www.spiritoftrees.org.  This site lists folktales, and links to folktales, concerning various species of tree.  Of particular interest to readers of this blog, the full text of Margaret Read MacDonald‘s telling of Mikku and the Trees (sometimes refered to as Mikka and the Trees), is available for free on this site.  When I interviewed Scottish storyteller Allison Galbraith, she cited this story as one of her favourites for environmental education.
