User Review  - gingergargoyle - LibraryThing

A wonderfully deeper look at the hidden meaning behind the runes ... not just for divination. This book looks to the historical backgrounds of the runes as well as modern uses and interpretations. My copy has gotten a good wearing out as I use it for reference often. Read full review
