A really interesting book by a sometime-Lamorna based painter, Dadaist and Crowley/Golden Dawn associate. Seems to begin disappointingly as a standard 'arty type donwshifts' work, but gets into its stride with a personal search for (at the time) forgotten wells and water sources; animism, and theories of stone and stone circles. Meandering and personal, but one of the odder fringe books to touch upon megalithic culture.
Very out of print, but worth a pop.
