Interesting things I’ve learned from reading this book: Mellified man. This is a wonderful legend, all that honey, the curative properties of consuming it, it’s really an amazing idea. Another interesting concept the book brings up, and I don’t know how true this is, but the idea that if they could build a house before the sun came back up then it was legal and whole communities arose like mushrooms overnight.
