Shelves: celtic-oriented
This book is a great book that gives an introduction to the different styles of Celtic Spirituality. It presents the essence of ancient culture and suggests its applications in today's world.

It has down-to-earth profiles of the druids, bards, seers, and other wisdom-keepers. It has excellent advice on how to incorporate the Celtic Wisdom into your own life.

The book has a short history of the Celtic nations, their mythology and lore and it has it in a way that is easy to understand and digest.

Shelves: celtic-studies
A very simple-to-understand book full of good and accurate information about the Celtic path. I highly recommend this book to people starting out and wanting to learn more about the druids or the Iron-age celts.

A good over-view of Celtic wisdom and history with plenty of ideas for continuing your study.
