To save the future of the planet Earth, the Queen of the Universe must know its deep past. So begins History of the World According to the Druids, the second book in author Toby Smith's Camelon series of wildly inventive young adult fantasy novels featuring newlyweds Yuri and Joslin, who are pulled into a lush world of romance and high adventure of intergalactic proportions. Action-packed and tenderhearted, this rollicking romp through the universe is certain to enthrall Earthlings and others who like their romance to shoot straight for the stars. As the book begins, Yuri and Joslin are on their honeymoon, and have taken their son Gerwyn with them. They've also enlisted the babysitting services of two sea dragons—the golden sea dragon queen Elissa and Yuri's dragon Ivan. As Ivan and Elissa entertain Gerwyn with stories of old, the two dragons find there's more than a little fire between them, and a new romance is sparked. As the Queen of the Universe, Joslin must face painful circumstances to bring the planet together. However, in order to regenerate the spirit of the Earth, she first must know its history. When Elissa comes to her aid, Joslin works to help the planet thrive, even while it is under incessant attack and the threat of nuclear destruction. At the same time, young Gerwyn finds a calling of his own as caretaker of a new generation of dragons. As the romance between Elissa and Ivan deepens, and Joslin's mission becomes all the more perilous, History of the World According to the Druids reveals how they all come together to create an enduring foundation for the regeneration of the planet following the Camelon Armageddon. Can Joslin's new family survive the imminent annihilation? As the stakes rise ever higher, the Queen must fill in the missing pieces of history to ensure the survival of her new family—and the Universe.

"In this compelling and highly reliable study of the Druids, respected Celtic scholar Peter Berresford Ellis sifts through the historical evidence and, with reference to the latest archaeological and etymological findings, gives the first authentic account of who the mysterious Druids were and what role they played in Celtic society." "The Druids emerge as the intellectual caste of ancient Celtic society. They were the doctors, the lawyers, the ambassadors, the advisers to kings. They also had a religious function. Ellis describes the special Druidic training, their philosophy, their belief in auguries, and their intriguing origins. He also shows that the current "New Age" image of the Druids as benevolent wizards comes from a woefully inadequate interpretation of the facts."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Early in the first century B.C. a Greek philosopher named Posidonius began an ambitious and dangerous journey into the little-known lands of the Celts. A man of great intellectual curiosity and considerable daring, Posidonius traveled from his home on the island of Rhodes to Rome, the capital of the expanding empire that had begun to dominate the Mediterranean. From there Posidonius planned to investigate for himself the mysterious Celts, reputed to be cannibals and savages. His journey would be one of the great adventures of the ancient world. Posidonius journeyed deep into the heart of the Celtic lands in Gaul. There he discovered that the Celts were not barbarians but a sophisticated people who studied the stars, composed beautiful poetry, and venerated a priestly caste known as the Druids. Celtic warriors painted their bodies, wore pants, and decapitated their foes. Posidonius was amazed at the Celtic women, who enjoyed greater freedoms than the women of Rome, and was astonished to discover that women could even become Druids. Posidonius returned home and wrote a book about his travels among the Celts, which became one of the most popular books of ancient times. His work influenced Julius Caesar, who would eventually conquer the people of Gaul and bring the Celts into the Roman Empire, ending forever their ancient way of life. Thanks to Posidonius, who could not have known that he was recording a way of life soon to disappear, we have an objective, eyewitness account of the lives and customs of the ancient Celts.
