This was my first look at Wicca and the contemporary Pagan experience of religion. It broadened my view of the world. ( )
Adler's thorough study of neopagan and wiccan groups highlights the breadth and vibrancy of the movements. It was fundamental to my understanding of modern wicca. The book is lengthy, but a reader should feel free to skip to the sections that will enlighten them the most, as much of the book is long case studies of various groups.
One of the first books I read as I began paganism. It was invaluable to me in understanding the diversity of neo-paganism.
This was a really interesting read, but I think might have spoke to me more if I were American? I'm not sure. I do think that reading it earlier in my pagan journey might have made it more valuable to me.
5 stars for influence and fame. Not easily read and some ideas more akin to psichology than religion. In any case a fascinating book

"Almost thirty years since its original publication, Drawing Down the Moon continues to be the only detailed history of the burgeoning but still widely misunderstood Neo-Pagan subculture. Margot Adler attended ritual gatherings and interviewed a diverse, colorful gallery of people across the United States, people who find inspiration in ancient deities, nature, myth, even science fiction. Contrary to stereotype, what Adler discovered was neither cults nor odd sects, but religious groups that are nonauthoritarian in spirit and share the belief that there is no one single path to divinity." "This fully revised edition of Drawing Down the Moon has been expanded to include an updated resource guide of newsletters, journals, books, groups, and festivals."--Jacket.
