“Under An Expanse of Oaks: A Druid’s Journey” by Rev. David P. Smith is a fantastic and concise introduction to Druidry. Rev. Smith takes us on an exploration of Druid beliefs, sacred sites, and sacred plants of the Druids.
I’ve read Bonewit’s book on Druids, and I could not tell you if I liked it or not. I didn’t have that problem with Rev. Smith’s book. I liked it. I liked it a lot.
While the book is a diminutive 126 pages, it is packed with tons of info. I think that one of the most impressive parts of the book was the appendix. The appendix contains an impressive list of the mailing addresses of various Druidic orders. It also has a nice bibliography and suggested reading list.
I was really impressed with Smith’s thoughts on Cyber Druidry or perhaps we should call it “E-Druidry.””Authors and teachers from all paths can be reached through this medium as well and can be an endless source of wisdom.”
All in all, I found it to be an excellent book. I give it 4 1/2 stars.
I received this complimentary book from Rev. David Smith for review purposes.
