Both these beautifully written works tell Emma's personal journey as a female Druid.

 

The books of Janet Farrar, Stewart Farrar and Gavin Bone

There are so many excellent books written by Janet, Stewart and Gavin, it is difficult to choose but I would certainly recommend "The Healing Craft", "The Pagan Path", "A Witches Bible Compleat", "Progressive Witchcraft", "The Witches' God" and "The Witches' Goddess".  I would suggest a search of Amazon's selection of their works.  Their website also contains much information and a number of interesting articles.  Janet and Gavin are our Guest Guides for two days during the Irish tour.
