I HIGHLY recommend all books by Rhuddlwm Gawr.
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 authors 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 simps that have given this book a one star rating.
I really liked the book. It has terrific ensights into Welsh Craft.
The Way was one of the first books that I read dealing with the subject of Welsh Witchcraft. I found it refreshing in that it didn't espouse "goddess worship only" or basic candle magick. I did find that it could induce paranoia. Most Welsh Pagans don't like it because it was primarily published 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 Way deals with spiritual processes of how a High Priest found the Grail of Immortality and continues the process of initiation in Welsh Witch. He also seemed to have an obsession with trying to convey to the reader the emotional roller coaster he experienced as he continues his Spiritual Journey. In fact it is one of the few Witchcraft Books which focuses on spirituality instead of spells. But, it does contain rituals, festival descriptions, and magick.
The Way was very entertaining and there's one method that I did like alot.Read more ›
Reviewer: Rhuddlwm Gawr (see more about me) from Kennesaw, GA
I have been patient with the slanderous reviewers of this book. But since I wrote it I feel I have an obligation to reply to the BS which has been placed on this section of Amazon. Certain disatisfied individuals who were asked to leave our church for various infractions of ethics and honor and then resigned have stated they are going to "get me". This slander is one of the various ways they have chosen to do so. But they didn't sign their name. Their claims are in fact blatant lies and fabrications in an attempt to hurt me financially, emotionally, and in any way they can. These are in fact very evil people who will stop at nothing to hurt others. But, they crossed the line when they slandered me and lied about my religion.
The Quest has been a best seller and that bothers them. These slanderous remarks are an attempt to hurt the sales of the book. Please don't be fooled by these people.

I see a lot of debate here about "The Way". That alone is good, because the more homogenized I see Witchcraft and Wicca get, the farther I distance myself from it. Read morePublished on Dec 10 2003
Don't expect to go through bits and pieces of this book with no prior understanding of the craft and get ANYWHERE. This is NOT light reading by any stretch of the imagination. Read morePublished on Dec 3 2003
