This book is even better than the last one they wrote together. These guys really know their Druidry inside out. If you are new to the Druid Way this book guides you through a whole year of rituals and a whole 'lifetime' of rites of passage ones to. I really loved the daily prayes and chants, so easy to do if you practice alone. Along with their other book The Path Through The Forest you would have the best books on Druidry ever. They actually explain in great detail, with walk throughs how things are done. No other book on Druidry does that. All the equipment is cheap as well. other books seem to think we are all made of money.

I have been a practising pagan for over 30 years, coming up initially through high magic, into witchcraft, and finally into Druidry. Along with 'The Path Through The Forest'(by the same authors), These are the most user-friendly, unpretentious, and heartfelt guidance-oriented books I have ever encountered, and I have encountered many. There is no 'my-way-or-the-highway' attitude. Indeed, the authors actively encourage the readers to search within and without for, and examine, alternative systems. They don't claim to have all the answers, but the advice and rituals herein do seem to work, and they can be readily adapted to your own philosophical belief system. I find myself referring to them often, and, even when at variance with other writers, I find that I trust them.

What a great book, right to the point, and written from years of experience. I have read many books on Druidry, this is one of the best, very informative, great for for those just starting out in Druidry and those of many years experience. Johno.

I found this to be great fanastic book on Druidry and highly recommend it to anyone. What I generally like about this book is there is a lot of information in there which you might not normally come across unless you were a member of an order or group etc - therefore making the material much more accessible for anyone interested who wishes to form their own group, go it alone or experience the tradition. Very nice rituals of the year and rituals of life stages. The rituals are written for 'god/goddess' format giving it a somewhat Wiccan flavour - however as the author does state you can change this to suit whatever beliefs you have.
Highly recommended for those just getting interested, old hands and those who might wish to rekindle their interest after a period of not being involved.
