REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Combined with the written resources are wonderful recounts of folk traditions associated with each festival, along with pictures and beautiful artwork. Included in each chapter is also a ritual, celebrated by women, some of which are exeptionally poignant and reverberate with deep meaning and wonderful potential. This books instills the reader with a deep respect for Mother Earth, and encourages the reader to do more with a newly awakened consciousness. ~ Druid Network

Beginning with Samhain, Cheryl Straffon weaves her way through a chapter on each of the eight festivals of the Wheel of the Year. With a vast knowledge of goddesses from many different cultures, an awareness of sacred sites, and interesting folklore, each of her chapters features festival history and a ritual. Daughters of the Earth is filled with all sorts of information, from tidbits about astrology to descriptions of rituals in caves where, at the equinox, the sun marked the spots along the wall of the cave. Straffon is from the U.K., so many of the caves and other places where certain rituals are performed are in England or Ireland. The artwork and photos in the book bring the history of goddess worship alive in the present. ~ , New Age Retailer Magazine USA
