The Crone: Woman of Age, Wisdom, and Power (1988). The Barbara Walker Knitting Project A community-sourced artist book project by the Tatter Library to knit each entry of Barbara Walker's treasury. The Book of Sacred Stones: Fact and Fallacy in the Crystal World (1989, with Werner P. Brodde). Women's Rituals: A Sourcebook (1990). Walker has brought her incredible fund of scholarship to our astounded attention once more. This wonderful book is not only about older women who have reached the age of wisdom, it is about all women, across all generational boundaries. Exploring ancient writings, making connections, illuminating our ancient past and current woes, the author has created a masterful work that explains so many, many things. Many books of the feminist, spiritual genre provide an adequate context for the Goddess, but Walker's book truly gave me an entirely new way to look at my mothers, my friends, and myself.

Women have borne the brunt of patriarchal religion’s evils – Walker even argues .

Women have borne the brunt of patriarchal religion’s evils – Walker even argues cogently for Religion As the Root of Sexism. Yet in her conclusion, Family and the Future, the ever-upbeat Walker imagines a return to the original, best traditions of religion as a metaphor for the wonder of the universe.

A probing account of the honored place of older women in ancient matriarchal societies restores to contemporary women an energizing symbol of self-value, power, and respect.

Indispensable history of the importance of senior women in society --- as well of male suppression of human females. And of how beautiful, wonderful and powerful 'wise' women can be --- either as gods or as humans --- such as political or cultural leaders. It's a 'short' book (for Walker) but it covers all of human recorded history.
It also made me wonder what were the motivations of males to destroy women as spiritual leaders of society. It causes me to wonder if men feel so 'inferior' to women that they destroyed them and substituted their own (male) figures --- or that there could have been a homosexual hatred of women out of jealousy of women --- this latest question is from me personally and not from Walker --- and due to some of the heinous cruelty against women in the early Catholic church from male-only 'priests/monks.' As well as the horrible male acts against women throughout the world today.
At any rate, Walker's book is important to re-establish fundamental priorities of human culture, society and values --- for all of our survival and well being --- and HAPPINESS.

What a profound book and it holds such hope for the future. By examining our common past she represents our hope for understanding how to bring all forward with frank discussions about what is prejudice and how it has been keeping us from fully embracing the truth of the origins of religion, for example. The past's facts and the evolution of knowledge come always from the urge to maintain order and predictability so that the other is sensed rightly as different so there is a curiosity and, depending on how it plays out, we will embrace some of our culture and society and we will pass others over.

This book was a gift and the recipient made me feel so good from the moment she saw it because she made me feel like I'd made her day. So, the purchase was perfect in every way. I recommend this book for all women. You don't have to be older to appreciate the wisdom it offers. Younger women and men can learn from this wisdom as well.

Wonderful, wonderful book for old crones like me. Is written with great respect for the ageing woman and her wisdom the power she holds within!
I bought this book for a women's book club. The Crone is a scholarly work but not one that a book club can easily discuss.
