when my readings on Celtic culture (probably got there from fantasy books and Arthuriana, but I'm a voracious learner) brought me to this book, I was engrossed. I soaked it all up like a sponge. The gods, the bards, the druids, the silver branch, ogham, tree ogham, bird ogham, the shining ones, oh! This book really was my first book of scripture, of the sort that actually nourished my spirit. It became the bones on which my spirituality would grow and thrive. So thank you very, very much, Caitlí ...more
I'd like to give this one 3.5 stars as I don't think it deserves 4 stars. (ok, I'd like to be able to give a lot of my books adjustments by half stars)Not a bad info book. You want to read about Celtic mythology and associated modern worship practices, this isn't bad.

This thin tome is loaded with well-researched and incisive information. I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Celtic lore.
From the bibliography of Ellen Dugan's Green Witch's Herbal (2009).
