5.0 out of 5 stars You have to get this book! March 31 2004
I plead with you. If you are a new seeker after the Celtic traditions of Paganism, you HAVE to read this one. Covers all pagan spirituality. Written by Rhuddlwm Gawr. I met him years ago when I was visiting the States. Wonderful teacher. Wonderful book.

llyfr darllenadwy a wnai'r tro i blant bach diniwed a diddeall. Fyddwn i ddim yn trafferthu i'w ddarllen os nad oes gennych amser i'w wastraffu ar ddim. Daeth yr awdur yma ar wyliau a phenderfynodd ddyfeisio crefydd ar sail yr ychydig a wyddai am ein gwlad. Y mae elfennau mwy amheus i'w ddysgeidiaeth felly byddwn i'n cynghori gofal mawr.

1.0 out of 5 stars wow Dec 1 2005
By morgan
This must rank as the most deluded piece of deliberate fabrication ever written about Wales - by a man who doesn't even have the capacity to understand how little he knows. One would have to be desperately gullible and easily-led to believe the glaring errors, flawed logic and deliberate inventions of this book. The author has only ever visited Wales twice, has little contact with Welsh people and lacks an understanding of how to use evidence effectively and has no concept of historical objectivity. He lives in a self-created world of fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars This also my Quest for the Grail July 4 2004
By A Customer
I have lived in North Wales for over nineteen years. When I first learned of this book I was skeptical - I mean here is an American - a Yank! - writing about US!!!
But after I bought it and read it. I think it is one of the best books on the Pagan Welsh I have read.
Please read it if you have the bob to buy it. It is expensive. But worth it.
Initiation, Gods and Goddesses, starting a coven, ritual, its all there.
I have it sitting on my altar and use it constantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Feb. 5 2004
By A Customer
I read the Quest first and then logged back on to read all the reviews. I'd never done that before. I'd expected to see some thoughtful reactions and, of course, I have.
What left me "stunned" were the viciously ignorant ravings of the one-star reviewers. My first thought was that they must be part of a deliberate campaign - okay, conspiracy - to shout the author down. My second thought was, "No,a deliberate campaign would suggest a measure of intelligent planning, arming them with facts, encouraging them to sound as if they'd actually read the book, etc."
So instead I'm just saddened to realize that there are some dangerously stupid people out there. I say saddened, but not surprised, and I do mean dangerous. Throughout history, tyrants seem to have had no trouble recruiting death squads numbering in the tens of thousands. They were recruited, I'm sure, from the
same simple minded idiots who are writing those one star reviews.
This was a well thought out and factual book. I am well aquainted with the Dynion Mwyn group in North Wales, and this book describes their religious philosophy very even handedly. Haven't met the author or anyone from his group in the US, but hope to when I visit in December.
Great Book.

The Quest by Rhuddlwm Gawr was one of the first books that I read dealing with the subject of Witchcraft. I found it refreshing in that it didn't espouse "goddess worship" or basic candle magick. I did find that it could induce paranoia. Most Welsh Pagans don't like it because it was written by an American. And it talks about Welsh Faerie Witchcraft. It actually gave the process that a true Welsh Witch would have to undergo before they would be adopted into a coven. And because it is authentic Witchcraft which has a core of traditional philosophy and an aura of modern techniques, they scoff at it for not appearing to be 10,000 years old. I respect the author for putting up with the politically correct non-pagan reviewers who want to debase the book, because they don't like the spelling of some Welsh words. I hope they are getting something from the experience of attacking a real pagan religion which has many more adherents in Wales than they could ever imagine.
Most of The Quest deals with spiritual processes of how a young man began the process of becoming initiated into Welsh Witch. He also seemed to have an obsession with trying to convey to the reader the emotional roller coaster he experienced as he set out on the journey. It was entertaining though and there's one method that I did like alot. Meditation helps me to quiet myself and at the same time energize for an upcoming ritual. It helps the Witch to concentrate on the purpose of the ritual. I actually could picture myself experiencing what he experienced. Definitely different from a female authored book.
The previous personal comments about the Tradition is laughable. The founder of the American branch is one of the most ethical people I have ever met.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Protest Dec 25 2003
By A Customer
I have been a member of YTT for several years. I love this book and wish these "nasty" reviewers would stop harassing us. I know them, they are people who, when they could not advance fast enough, tried to force the YTT members to do what they wanted by hook and crook. Mostly crook. They have forged peoples names to letters, they have sexually abused students and they have attempted to cause YTT staff to do what they wanted by lying about us. Now they are "reviewing" The Quest and other books by slandering us and defaming our founder. A copy of their slander and forgery has been sent to the FBI for further action. Forgery is a felony. Fraud is a felony.
