Read it, but read others as well
Cowan's book, while engaging, frequently makes wild leaps of logic, driving cases for superiority of the Shamanic culture of the classical Celts, but at the same time denigrates Druidic culture and Roman civilization. He makes factual errors, such as refering to the Celts as the Six Nations (there were Seven when he wrote the book), and, on the one hand says that Celts integrated with Christians while in the next sentence berating Christians for destroying the culture. His constant references to other cultures make the book less on the subject of Celtic Shamanism, and more on comparative shamanism.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
