"Galina Krasskova continues to be one of the most unique and
impassioned voices in modern Heathenry. Her devotion to the gods
and the ancestors is both palpable and contagious." --Dagulf
Loptson, author of Playing with Fire--Dagulf Loptson
"In this substantially expanded edition, Exploring the Northern Tradition is transformed from a good to a great introduction to the world and practice of contemporary Heathenry." --H. Jeremiah Lewis, author of Tending the Bull and Hunting Wisdom--H. Jeremiah Lewis
"When Galina Krasskova's Exploring the Northern Tradition first came out in 2005, it represented a coming of age of sorts not only in the Heathen, but in the larger polytheist community. The intervening years have been filled with exciting developments in the world of polytheism, and Krasskova has been at the cutting edge of most, if not all of them. This new edition of her groundbreaking book offers a chance for new readers to gain the full benefit of her constantly deepening insight and piety." --Dr. Edward Butler, PhD and author of Essays on a Polytheistic Philosophy of Religion and Essays on Plato--Dr. Edward Butler, PhD
