An Interesting Read
This is the first book I've read on the Druids or the Celts. I found that it was a good starter book for a study of the Celts and the Druids. Markale gave a lot of information on a subject that is still seen as somewhat of an enigma. Though I would have liked to learn more about these 'Priests of Nature' than the book offered, I thought he did a good job of conveying knowlegde that was traditionally passed down by word of mouth. I liked this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Great Information backed by evidence
This book is by far the best comprehensive collection of facts about the ancient orders of druids. Markale is the only author of druidism and the celts who uses actual archeological and philology to dedcipher the true intent and purpose of the druids. If you're looking for a book grounded in facts and not in some New Age "enlightenment" then this is a great place to start. Of course, I did find it unnerveing when he tried (and I think without success) to make a connection between the polytheistic druids and their natural state as a monotheistic order.Was this review helpful?
