This was a great read, talking about the autumn, the (second) harvest and the autumn equinox from the perspective of many different cultures (the portrayal was as far as I know fair) and I would recommend this for anyone interested in autumn. It takes up and go deep into so many different things.

I have to admit, the book really did get me in the mood for Mabon! :) and I also learnt quite a lot of new information from it. What I especially liked was the scientific (i.e. astronomical and biological) outlook on this Sabbat. Most Pagans tend to look at symbolism, traditions and mythology, but often forget that Paganism is about nature in its very essence. What better way to understand the seasons than to look at what's going on in nature, both on Earth and in our universe.

Most volumes of this nature tend to focus on just the decorations or recipes or rituals that are specific to the time of year. This book went a little further, in that it explained the science behind things as well as giving historical facts that went along with the specific holy day. I very much enjoyed it, and I'll be trying out some of the experiments and activities with my daughter. It had very family friendly information, and I like that it included things for younger children to do.
