Product description


Storytelling and practicality combine to guide the reader through the creation and uses of ritual tools. Joanna is clearly inspired by the ancient tales and offers useful insights and ethical understanding to ground old teachings in a contemporary setting. A clear passion for the Land permeates the book and will inspire many readers to deepen their links to their own local landscapes. The ritual format moves beyond the Wiccan styles familiar in so many other books, to consider practices rooted in myth and Insular Celtic culture. Whilst built on solid scholarship, this book is accessibly written and engaging, a definite bonus to the bookshelves of those starting out in Druidry as well as experienced walkers wanting to revise and reconsider their journeys. --Robin Herne, Course Leader, Religious Studies and Ethics, University Campus Suffolk and author of Old Gods, New Druids

Concise, precise and, despite its brevity, comprehensive. Indeed, just like a true Crane Bag, this book contains all you need plus that little bit extra. Its open and friendly style makes it an easy read and it gets directly to the point. But don't be deceived by that into thinking it is superficial. Far from it. A wonderful little tome that provides the perfect start for a lifelong practical exploration of an essential part of the Druid Way. --Graeme K. Talboys, author of The Path Through the Forest: A Druid Guidebook

The Crane Bag is a nice little introduction to a very English style of Druidry (Druidism) which is in essence nature worship. In it the author shares her passion for the land and shows how to do simple rituals upon it. She also shares ways to cultivate respect for the Earth and all her creatures. Like Joanna, I always do my Druid rites out of doors and in this book I find a kindred spirit. --Ellen Evert Hopman, author of A Legacy of Druids
