Reviews

"As a guide for Celtic Reconstructionists, this book is invaluable. . . . Hopman's version of the Ogham meanings and use is just one of many; yet this book is so well researched and written that one cannot help but see the truth."--Eolas, Wisdom of the Oaks, Sept 2009
"Hopman is an incredible resource for all of us seeking to take our health, medicine, and spirituality into our own hands. A Druid's Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine deserves a place on the shelf next to her other guides of magical and medicinal love."--Witches&pagans.com, September 2010
"Ellen Evert Hopman has put together a great resource for tree lore in A Druid's Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine. Not only does this book offer an historical perspective on the culture and civilization of the Druids of Ireland, it provides a description of the herbal uses and spiritual aspects of each tree described by the Ogham Tree Alphabet."--Kathryn Price, book editor, WomensRadio
"This could be a reference to keep in your library, or used as a place to start an entirely new avenue of education and learning. The presentation is simple enough not to be intimidating, but the depth of information and the bibliography are quite impressive."--D. Tigermoon, The Pagan Review, Nov 2008
"Not only is Hopman a Druid priestess extraordinaire, but a master herbalist. . . . I would suggest this book to anyone interested in Celtic history, mythology, herbalism, and/or Pagan religious practices. In other words, most everyone."--The Magical Buffet, Nov 2008
" . . . this will not be a one-read through book, but a book you will return to again and again, making new discoveries each time."--Christopher Blackwell, AREN Alternative Religions Education Network, Jul 2008
"Not only will you get a lesson in language, but also in the various uses available to anyone wishing to connect with the magic carried by each individual type of tree. The Gaelic pronunciation guide in the back of the book alone is worth the price of this book. There is a plethora of information jammed into this one and well worth the turning of the pages."--Veritas Newsletter, Jul 2008
"Ellen Evert Hopman is a sister to Trees, and can hear their countless whispers and songs, which is what makes this book so magical."--Crow Birchsong (Mabyn Wind), reviewer
"This book is indispensable reading for anyone following the Druidic path and indeed anyone interested in the wider Pagan movement. But also, it has been expertly written in a way that any modern practitioner of traditional healing methods, or herbalist, will find a wealth of knowledge that will inspire and guide them to a much greater understanding of the use and history of each tree."--Eolas, Wisdom of the Oaks, Feb 2009
"This is a great resource book for anyone looking to learn more about the herbal practices of the Druid's and to add working with herbs to their own practices. . . . This book also includes a pronunciation guide at the end that is really a nice added bonus."--The Pagan Review, Mar 2009
"Hooray! A book that tells us how to pronounce a tongue-twisting Celtic phrase like Craobh a b'Γ‘irde de 'n abhall thu . . . the whole book is interesting to read, with its accounts of life and magic in Celtic Ireland."--Barbara Ardinger, Pan Gaia, No. 50, Spring 2009
"The herbal remedies will be of great use to myself, and to anyone who decides to read the book. . . . this will be a cherished addition to any Neo-Druid's library."--Druidic Dawn, June 2009
