Format: Paperback
This was the first book I actually finished reading on Druidry (having previously attempted another, larger book). I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in this path as the first book to read.
It contains useful exercises that allow you to _feel_ and _do_ instead of just reading. It makes this book a means of spiritually exploring Druidry, rather than giving a purely intellectual look at its elements.
Around the same time as reading this, I would also recommend reading Philip Shallcrass' 'Druidry' (a 'Piatkus Guide'), for a taste of the different ways of accessing Druidry.
Emma Restall Orr is a great writer on Spiritual matters, drawing you in on a personal level, and leaving you at the end of reading feeling like you've truly done something, changed within and discovered.
Remember to check the back of the book for useful URL's, associations and book recommendations!

I'd recommend this book to anyone just starting out on the path of Druidry. Emma does a great job of quickly debunking the major misconceptions that exist, and presenting the fact about and ideas within Druidry in a clear and concise fashion. She also provides some great practical suggestions to get you thinking. However if you're looking for in depth knowledge you may find the explanations are a little short or simplistic and do not provide the information you require. Principles of Druidry is a very easy read, much less tough going than some of the older books on Druidry, and definately a good source of information to satisfy the curious.

This book serves as an excellent primer to the earth-centered tradtion of Druidism. as a practitioner of an African Earth-centered tradtion, I found the book to be quite enlightening and always captivating. Druids around the world should applaud Bobcat's (Emma Restall) efforts in presenting the beauty of this tradition.

A very informative introduction to Druidry, presented in an easily understood manner. Emma Restall-Orr is a modern-day Druidess and an authority on Druidry. You are literally led by the hand in this introduction, and, if this is your path, you are led to move on to greater understanding.

I'm not a newcomer to Druidry and in fact bought this book for someone else - despite that i found myself reading and enjoying it. The subject is treated sensitively but in an inspirational manner that will reconnect both newcomers and experienced practitioners to nature and the spirit of our native British spirituality. Thoroughly recommended.
