The Book of Runes: A Handbook for the Use of an Anceint Oracle: The Viking Runes with Stones: 10th Anniversary Edition

Front Cover
Macmillan, Aug 15, 1993 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 159 pages
You are holding something very special: a part of the ancient past and, perhaps, a part of your future.

Based on a tradition over one thousand years old, this contemporary Oracle has established itself as a remarkable aid in practical decision making. When first published in 1983, R. Buckminster Fuller said: "What a wonderful thing to have done-midwife the rebirth of an ancient oracle."

A huge success with over 700,000 copies sold, The Book of Runes has proved itself to be a modern classic. For this, the tenth anniversary of the work, Ralph H. Blum has expanded and refined the runic system, making the Runes the most profoundly useful self-help tool of our era.
