There have been many books written on Norse paganism, but not so many focusing on the Anglo-Saxon tradition, especially for the beginner. This book is a much needed resource and serves as a very thorough introductory text including many ways to incorporate Heathen rituals into contemporary spiritual life. The book is a good overall synopsis and a very readable, informative and easy to understand, but never dumbed-down. The book is well-written and provides new insights for the beginner's search. There is a good glossary of unfamiliar terms as well a suggested reading list to take things to the next level.
