Format: Paperback
I give this book 5 stars because in my mind it is the most well rounded book on Ogam and Ogam divination available today.
Mr. Mountfort puts forth a scholarly study of Ogam including history of, his interpretation of, making of, and casting of Ogams.
What struck me the most about this book was his painstaking effort to link for us the individual meanings to thier corresponding myths. Along with this he also at no time gets bogged down in the dogma of right and wrong when it comes to interpretations and makes it clear that the study of Ogam is an ongoing evolution and today's reality may very likely change as time progresses. What is important is that IT WORKS!
Lastly, he takes us through the recent revival of Ogam and gives us his views on modern publications pertaining to Ogam.
All in all, an interesting informative read.

This is the most accessible and available of the few ogham (or ogam) books out there. It is luckily very good and well researched. Working through this book will put you on the path of mastery of this tool. It includes in depth interpretations and a number of useful spreads.

I went into this book knowing very little about the Ogam alphabet- just some simple associations with each letter from other books I've read that mentioned it in passing. But the Pgam is explored thoroughly and in-depth in this book- it definitely inspired me to start making my own set and using it as a divination tool! The books begins with a section explaining some of the history and mythology of the Ogam alphabet, citing a variety of sources for the best coverage. The author then goes on to describe each few, which is the best part! The fews are described in terms of word ogams, mythology, botany of the associated tree, and more. The last section directs you into a practical use of the wealth of knowledge the author provided. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone interested in the Ogam, beginner or experienced! Great read!

I am learning ogham and one of the most important things that ogham offers is a path to communing with the trees. This is a fantastic book and I encourage people to use it for the purposes of communing with the wisdom that the trees can teach us.

Ogam The Celtic Oracle Of The Trees, is one of those books that you will refer to again and again. a great deal of effort went into writing this book and i can truthfully say i was impressed with the Authors writing style and his investigative approach in presenting the information about the history of the Ogam as clearly as possible.
This is a bare bones book and i was so pleased to see that within the first few pages he writes in a very straightforward manner about said history.
There is not a great deal of unneeded information to wade through and his honest writing style is pleasingly refreshing and easy to connect with.
The book itself is truly one of the most informative i have read thus far , and i was pleased to see that within its pages were very detailed descriptions and historical information about each individual Ogam . the back contains sample layouts for the student to use and he provides beautifully written examples of how each ogam relates to energies we encounter in daily life. As i am an artist and make and design Ogam staves i was very pleased to offer this book as a primer and guide to clients ordering my work . they have since related their feelings regarding this book and all were positive .

I love this book so much, I got his book of rune lore....this book is especially nice since the options of buying ogham staves is limited and he provides suggestions for making your own, as I have done.

The book Ogam: The Celtic Oracle of the Trees: Understanding, Casting, and Interpreting the Ancient Druidic Alphabet is excellent. It explains the symbols and tells you how to make your own casting sticks.
