Some interesting stuff, and even though this book was written in the early 1900s, despite some outdated research, much of it is still fairly valid info.
The best thing of course, is the myth and legend. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more complete collection of all the stories of the Celts. Not only is the Irish mythology very complete (which believe me, is hard to find a complete collection everywhere--because there's an awful lot!), but there's a great collection of myth from all the other Celtic cultures, i.e., Wales, Brittany, etc. There's even a section on the origins of the Aurthurian legends, and a good one at that. It's hard to find such good stuff all in one place.
I like the fact that, rather than displaying each myth word for word (which would take volumes and volumes of reading), the author just gives a succinct, but detailed, overview of each story. It's like reading the Sparks Notes. He really helps describe each story in a way that explains WHY the stories are significant. He puts everything in context, which just makes it all the more entertaining.Read more ›
