Considering the lack of books concerning Celtic Mythology in the Erie public
library, I don't find this at all surprising. The only book I could find
was one titled "Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles", which was
actually more of a history book than a book of mythology.
Libraries in the States tend to be somewhat erratic when it comes to some of
the less- mainstream subject areas.
who noticed that while they didn't have books on Celtic Myth, they had
several shelves worth of Greek & Roman
