**Recommended Books Page**

We feel that is very important to provide a list of recommended books, and because of that we have brought you to this page before taking you to the main store listings.

This is the Bibliography from the Summerlands Ogham Divination Class.  Much of what has been written about the Druids and Celts is "dreck" but there are some rare jewels of knowledge even in the least scholarly works. *Some* of the books listed below are seminal works on the Celts and the Druids.   We sincerely hope that you will enjoy these recommended selections. Please use the message board or email links to give us your own recommendations.
