The World of the Druids by Miranda J. Green

Incomprehensible. I’ve just read an entire book about druids and I have no idea what druids are. Neither, it seems, does the rest of the world or even the people who call themselves druids. Ancient druids may have existed, but were already dying out when the Romans stumbled across them and started writing about them. Mythical druids exist in Irish folklore, but it is folklore written by Christian missionaries who seemed to have a love-hate relationship with them. And modern druids…well, modern druids basically do anything they want in order to feel closer to their ancient spirits. What about the Dungeons & Dragons druids? I seem to remember that they could kick some serious ass. Maybe we should throw them into the mix and muddy the waters even more.
