Title: Celtic Rituals: An Authentic Guide to Ancient Celtic Spirituality
Author(s): Alexei Kondratiev

This was one of the first (if not THE first) books published for a Celtic recon audience.  Alexei, who died only a few weeks ago, was a highly respected member of the CR community, and a fantastic teacher and author.

This book is well worth the read for anyone interested in a CR path.  The big caveat -- and one Alexei himself always pointed out -- is that CR didn't really exist yet when he wrote this book, so it is written from a somewhat Wiccish perspective, at least in terms of the ritual format and things like that.  Nevertheless, this book is part of the very foundation of CR.

(Note that editions of this book have been published under different titles, including _The Apple Branch_.)

I am so glad you pointed that our, Moon Ivy.  I was about to purchase this book, but I already have The Apple Branch  I didn't make the connection, apparently!  lol.  I've not read the entire book, but it seems to be very Wiccan from what I have read.
