I'm still reading this book. I'm taking it a little at a time. So far it's really great. It's filled with celtic songs, it goes in depth about celtic history and the ancient celtic religious practices, and offers insight on how the solstices and sabbats were prepared and celebrated. Each new chapter starts off with a wonderful ages old celtic quote. If you come from a celtic background or actively participate in the celebration of solstices and sabbats, and preferably the worship of brighid, than you'll love this book. There's a lot about brighid in this book. You'll either learn something from it, or it will be a great household book to keep around for entertainment.
