Reviews

"The Pagan Book of the Dead travels on the roads of the Other World, not to mention the traveler's tales from this ineffable space, that have come down to us through folk tales and folk songs. The book ends by comparing these trips into the afterlife and into the Other World with experiences of imminent death...The Pagan Book of the Dead is an extensive look at the cartography and folklore of the afterlife worlds as seen by ancient European Cultures." * SirReadaLot.org *
