Much more than just a book - this is a magical journey,
This review is from: From the Cauldron Born: Exploring the Magic of Welsh Legend & Lore (Paperback)
In this work, the author takes one of the seminal tales of ancient Wales, explores and dissects it, and explains each and every aspect in amazing detail and clarity. Kristoffer Hughes invites you not to simply read this book, but to experience and live the tale of the transformation of Gwion Bach into Taliesin. This work is refreshing and unique, the explanations are detailed but easy to understand, which makes it easy to immerse oneself fully into the story.
The passion of the author for the native tales of his country shines through and illuminates this tale as never before. Kristoffer Hughes is a well known and respected authority on this subject matter, and this work is set to become "the benchmark" for anyone seeking to obtain knowledge and understanding of this famous tale in the future.
This is not "just another book" on the tale of Taliesin and the cauldron of Cerridwen ...... it is the ultimate guide book, ready to take you on your journey of discovery ...... if you let it !
