Atlas of the Celts --- by Clint Twist. --- Well illustrated with ample captions; annotated maps to tie it all together. Lots of illustrations. Well organized, well written. A hig- powered overview of these people from the age of stone to the present-day. You don’t have to read the whole book at once: its organization makes it easy to pick and chose.
