    Margot Adler has been a radio producer and journalist since 1968, pioneering live, free-form talk shows on religion, politics, women's issues, and ecology. She lectures on the subject of Paganism and Earth-centered traditions and leads workshops on the art of ritual, celebration, and song.

Her most recent book is Heretic's Heart: A Journey Through Spirit and Revolution.
    Now fully revised-the classic study of Neo-Paganism

    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. In this new edition featuring an updated resource guide of newsletters, journals, books, groups, and festivals, Margot Adler takes a fascinating and honest look at the religious experiences, beliefs, and lifestyles of modern America's Pagan groups.

    • Not worth buying

      This book is long and drawn out very boring.

    • As complete as it could have been in 1979

      Without revealing secret and unspoken truths of the craft, Margo has written a book that is not only very informational, it is also completely captivating. It seems strange for me to use the word intertaining when referring to a book written about ones religion. This book, however, is worth a close look at folks already elevated in the Craft or Paganism no matter what the tradition of that particular person or group, and to those who are just interested -- It is fun and it will certainly keep your attention. Ms. Adler was given entry to the most important levels of this relition. If you are new on this path - there is lots to learn from this book - it's a must have. I personally am very grateful to Ms. Adler.
