Ancient Irish Tales The Druids The Pagan Celts


Although not as universally recommended as the nine essential books, these "most highly recommended" books all come with the endorsement of several prominent Druid web pages on the net. Certainly, anyone serious about the revival of Celtic Paganism will want to own and read each of the eighteen books listed here. Links will take you to Amazon.com when possible, or another bookseller (such as Barnes and Noble or Amazon.co.uk). Unfortunately, several of these fine books are out of print. When this is the case, your best bet is to conduct a used book search.
