Being a Pagan: Druids, Wiccans, and Witches Today
Who are the pagans and what do they stand for? Why would some of the members of the best educated most materially comfortable generation of Americans look back to mystical traditions many millennia old?

Ways of worship from sources as diverse as the pre-Christian Celts ancient Egypt and Native American traditions are currently helping their followers find meaning in life while living in the Information Age.

From Margot Adler an NPR reporter and author of Drawing Down the Moon to Isaac Bonewits ArchDruid and founder of a modern neo-Druidic organisation those interviewed in this book express the rich diversity of modern Paganism.

With co-author Lawrence Bond she examines how Pagans address such issues as parenting organized religion and politics. The resulting dialogues illuminate the modern Pagan revival.*
