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.

When I picked up this book during a visit at an occult store in London, something inside said, "Buy It Buy It!!!" So I did. I didn't realize I would be purchasing one of the best books I had ever read. I know quite a bit about Witchcraft, having been initiated in the late 80s and again in 1995 and 96. I am a third degree of a Gardnerian linage. I have read about the Craft since the late 70s. So I'm not a neophyte of any tradition.
This story is real. Not because I checked it out but also because I feel it in my insides. This tale took place. During holiday two years ago, I went to Palma and took the tram to Porte de Solier (Port of the Sun) and heard the story about the house with the large boulder in one corner. I visited Puige Major (the mountain rhuddlwm climbed) I also took a trip on an excursion boat mentioned in the story.
Initiations are strange things at best. The initiation that Rhuddlwm mentioned was very strange as well as the story leading up to it. This is not a how to book. This is a what happened book. This book tells the story of a young man's journey from being a child to being an initiated man. It is an exciting book in which you will learn many many lessons and much esoteric knowledge. real knowledge.
Please buy it. Dance in the fairy ring.
Ellen
