    I did genuinely really like this book It sucked me in, and I felt like I was doing the journey with him, which is all you can ask from a book In spite of the fact that I ve always been deeply drawn to the Celtic tradition, anything I ve ever read about it academically, has left me cold, and also sort of stranded, because I didn t feel like I d discovered much of anything This book appeared out of nowhere and the path unraveled in front of me, in much the same way, that the South Down Way does fo [...]

    This is a welcome new edition of a book that has been unavailable for a while It charts Carr Gom s journey from his adopted home town of Lewes to the hill giant of the Long Man of Wilmington on many planes Like fellow pilgrims of Chaucer s Canterbury Tales, sharing tales along the way, we accompany Carr Gom on his perambulations and it is like going on a multi dimensional ramble with a wise and witty guide, and though we enter perilous territory coming face to face with our the Land s woundednes [...]

    Overall this book wasn t what I d expected from the title I was looking for history and overview of the Druid way of life Instead, it s the author s personal journey, and some would say fantasy, as he walks an ancient path through the South Downs of England, wrestling with many a demon and decision Indeed, some of these challenges could have been avoided by packing lunch and a raincoat The journey, from what I can tell, is just a few day trips, but there is plenty of discussion of the author s i [...]

    A quote from the book The real magic lies not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes That s how I read this book or maybe that s how I read in general, because I ve always thought books were magic and they took me to places, real or not, where I could dream Maybe it s just me, but I ve always been intrigued by the tales of the Round Table, Arthur, Merlin, Druids, the Holy Grail Of course, the same goes for Greek mythology, Egyptian, and so on But, really, there was always a special pla [...]

    Read this for the first time while in graduate school, studying at Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, Tennessee An excellent, if somewhat quirky, book those who are looking for a how to guide to the Druid tradition are in for a disappointment But those who are willing to follow Philip Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids on a ramble through a mythic landscape which transparently overlays or, perhaps, underlies the ordinary reality of the British Isles are in for an enjoya [...]

    Philip starts the entire concept as a physical journey through the various aspects of his local landscape Adding to this journey is the manner of processing the deaths of two people that he had great respect for Further into the journey comes the addition of a newborn child to his family completing the motif of endings and beginnings that comprise the concept of making a journey Interspersed throughout the chapters are various concepts on religious belief, local history, and Philip s own insight [...]

    Brilliant and moving Part travelog, part meditation on sacred landscape an extended reflection on the inner meanings of time, place and journeying Much a revelation of the spirit of Druidry than an explanation of it s history and practice.Carr Gomm is a great and tender soul, and his book is just the sort of eccentric catch all that represents English belles lettres at it s finest.

    Still my favourite book by Philip Carr Gomm If you re interested in nature religion or walking the South Downs, this is the book for you It fills your mind with beautiful images of the English landscape, seeing it through the eyes of the author It is also the most personal book Carr Gomm has written so far.
