The Solstice Evergreen
 
It’s the History, Folklore and Origins of the Christmas Tree by Sheryl Ann Karas. http://www.healingcommunication.com/myproducts/mybooks.html

The publisher says “The Solstice Evergreen is now out in a revised and expanded second edition. This book includes several new Christmas Tree stories as told by contemporary American storytellers. Contributors include Chuck Larkin, Julia Arrants, Larry Johnson, Howard D. Fencl, and Mary Murphy.

The evergreen has been a potent cultural symbol of rebirth from the dawn of history. Trees have special significance to almost every culture, from prehistoric Japan to Northern Africa, from Native Americans to Medieval Germans.

The Solstice Evergreen explores the rich spiritual heritage of this ancient symbol in depth and includes a great many myths, legends, and folktales from across the globe as well as dozens of period illustrations. Gathered together in this book for the first time, this rich collection of mythology presents a unique perspective spanning many cultures and centuries”.
