From the Back Cover:

'The Book of Druidry' is a comprehensive study of the Druids, from their earliest history to the present-day renaissance. The book includes an examination of the ideas that shaped the Druids – their principals deities, their myths, their wisdom and learning and their social organisation. It explores their relationship with Arthur, the Grail and Taliesin, and the mystery of the Druid Egg and the Serpent, and explains the significance of dolmens, barrows and stone circles, in relation to many sacred sites. A selection from the early source texts, and the entire text of the Order’s Beltane ritual, complete this extensive volume.

Ross Nichols was the Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids from 1964 to 1975, during which time he worked on this definitive account of the history and practice of Druidry. However, for almost a decade following his sudden death, the book was lost, as indeed were most of the papers and teachings of the Order. Through a series of extraordinary events, both the book and the papers were rediscovered, resulting in the rebirth of the modern Order, and the eventual publication of this volume. With a foreword by Philip Carr-Gomm, the new Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, this is the authoritative statement of the key ideas and inner history of the Druids.
