I remember reading somewhere recently a book recommendation, stating it had a good overview of most (or at least a good chunk of) pagan paths. I remember thinking it *may* have been on Jet's Beginner's Book List.

And now I can't find where I read that.

Does anyone know what book it could be?

ETA: Eureka! I found the page I had been reading ( this article ) and the book recommendation was Margot Adler's Drawing Down the Moon.

Thanks to matrinka69 for her help yesterday.

Thanks for the link! That could very well be the book; again, thanks.

I found it; that is the book.

Incidentally, where I saw it recommended yesterday was via in this article.

It's one of those "must read" books, though it's dry as toast, IMO.

LOL Yeah, I think someone else (who shall remain nameless) has said the same thing. But that's fine by me, I'm interested in overviews of the various pagan religions; a compare/contrast, as it were.

Comp is a good idea. And for that, I can't think of a better tome to refer to. I really don't mind dry books, unless I'm trying to get through them in a hurry.

Yeah, straight up history/information books are a hard slog sometimes; like dry toast or saltines.
