A thoughtful, in-depth guide to Celtic and Druidic magic, filled with ideas and rich material.

De Vries has written a rich book, full of guidance and historical information. It is a treasury of imaginative workings based on old sources. The ideas are solidly practical yet grounded in the understandings gained from archaeological remains and the surviving texts. If you have only one book on druidic spirituality and Celtic magic, this has to be the one.
