    5. Read this as research for a project Great collection of myths and stories and a straightforward and easy read.

    6. Rachel Patterson has found stories about The Cailleach from around the British Isles Beyond this, Rachel has also taken a look at stories from other parts of Europe which have either a similarity in name or in legend that could possibly be a hint that The Cailleach had an importance across the continent and not just in the Isles.I had already found many of these stories in my own research The benefit here is that I have all of those stories plus others in one handy place It is divided into easil [...]

    7. This book was reviewed via Netgalley The Cailleach, by Rachel Patterson, is one of the Pagan Portals series This nifty series offers snapshots on a wide variety of pagan topics The Cailleach focuses on the eponymous deity, little known and misunderstood by many This little guide covers myths and legends related to the Cailleach, or the Old Woman of Winter Most chapters focus on regions Ireland, Scotland, England , though others focus on aspects Lady of Beasts, balance with Brighid , and a few on [...]

    8. I was drawn to the Cailleach after visiting Ireland in 2015 and prior to my return in 2016, I decided to do a bit of research on Her Unfortunately, while I purchased the eBook, I neglected to download it to my eReader and thus had to wait until I arrived back in Canada to actually read it I had no idea of her connection to Loughcrew, but it certainly explains my experience there this time around I was a bit disappointed that the author was so unsure of the validity of some of the stories about c [...]

    9. Loved the book I like the stories and folklores about the Cailleach however, I wished there could be personal experiences in this book For example, how the Cailleach appeared to the writer, the specific experiences and wisdom She imparted That would take the book to another level

    10. Written in an informal and humorous tone, this book is an abundance of information about the Cailleach and similar legends, some of which may be versions of the Cailleach.

    11. Fun, fast read More a collection of stories of the crone of the celtic pantheon I liked seeing how many stories had elements in common, even stories from wildly different countries Plus the author had a delightful, slightly sarcastic writing voice.I would have liked a bit on ways to encounter the Cailleach in ones own life though.
