Book Review:
Drawing Down the Moon

Author: Margot Adler
Trade Paperback, 584 pages
Publisher: Penguin USA
Publication date: March 1997
ISBN: 014019536X

Margot Adler's book is subtitled "Witches, Druids, Goddess-Worshippers, and Other Pagans in America Today." Unfortunately, although the book has been revised and expanded since its original publication in 1979, the majority of the book describes America Paganism as it was in the mid to late 1970s. Don't let that stop you from getting this book, however. It's still the best overview of American Paganism available and truly does belong on the bookshelf of anyone even slightly interested in Paganism.

Unlike many Pagan books published today, Drawing Down the Moon is fairly scholarly, with footnotes, references, and neutral viewpoint; although it is not boring or hard to understand. It also covers a wide range of Pagan religions, not just Wicca. Therefore, this book is an excellent book for someone trying to find out what Paganism is all about.
