Glastonbury, the ancient Isle of Avalon, is known worldwide as a holy shrine, ancient sanctuary and sacred centre overflowing with history, myths and legends. For the visitor, armchair traveller or the reader who simply wonders what attracts so many thousands to this ancient sacred place, this guidebook provides an inspiring introduction.
This new edition tells the story of the events and unique people living in and visiting Glastonbury in the early 20th Century - early characters of the British 'new age' movement and precursors of all that has happened in the town since the 1960s.
Alice Buckton, Wellesley Tudor Pole, Rutland Boughton, Dion Fortune, Frederick Bligh Bond, Fiona Macleod and others, between them, unfold a saga of mystery, creativity and questing.
This book explores stories of Earth Creation: how the Earth, the rivers, the lakes, the oceans, the mountains, the valleys, the clouds, the sky, and the first animals and people came into being.
These stories have been passed on orally for centuries. They not only inspire us to reach for the stars but they also teach us to respect the natural world, to respect other people, and to respect ourselves.
