Gary R. Varner, author of more than twenty books and monographs on early history, religious development, folklore, mythology and Native American culture announced that an early Kindle edition of the illustrated, 360 page exploration of sacred wells and waters, Water from the Sacred Well is now available.

This is a second, much enlarged edition of Varner's 2004 title, Water of Life Water of Death. Several previously unpublished photos as well as new textual materials have been included in this updated version.

Water of Life Water of Death has been unavailable from the previous publisher for many months and Varner is excited to make it available once again.


Excerpt

"With this book Gary has seized the subject by the horns; his treatment of it is serious and penetrating. He has examined the lore associated with sacred waters from many angles and, most importantly in my opinion, maintained an international perspective whilst doing so. And therein lies the true strength of this book: it is both broad in approach and deep in analysis. It manages to bring disparate strands of lore from all over the globe together concisely between two covers; this book is many books in one.

On one level it is an excellent sours of information about the folklore and mythology that surrounds water, whether 'holy' or some basic natural source of life. I guarantee that the reader will find some gem of information that they didn't know before within these pages. Personally, I learned a great deal from reading this book because, like so many Britsh wells enthusiasts, I have had relatively little exposure to the waterlore of foreign lands.

On another level, it is a book about history. Gary takes the reader on a voyage from the beliefs of the earliest cultures that were carving glyphs into rocks as a mark of their reverence for and reliance on water through to present day beliefs and practices across the globe."

--from the forward by Richard Pederick
