This book served more as a reference guide for a short story I was writing. Most of us are familiar with the Roman and Greek gods, but Celtic? I wanted to draw from lesser-known entities.

Thorough, well-written, and quite enjoyable stories about those kuh-razee Celts. I'm always interested in how societies were formed and the beliefs behind their origins. This book satisfied that interest.

In the future, if ever needing to tap into Celtic gods, demi-gods, or Demi Moore-gods, I'll grab this little
Now with the busyness of the end of the year, this one took me quite a bit to read. But I should have read it in between other things, as it is really a reference book.

The information contained within, for each mythological character, is mostly brief, just giving outlines, with various images for some of the more major ones. Plus there is also extra, sometimes repeated, information on various things like Quests, Otherworlds, etc., to further expand upon the mythology.

There were quite a few thing

Arthur Cotterell, former Principal of Kingston College in London, has spent many years combining senior educational management with historical research. He is the respected author of more than thirty books, and is now writing on the Chinese empire, from the history of which he considers one can learn as much about leadership as from Ashridge or Harvard.
