The book: Rare First Edition of The Druid Path, a collection of short stories set in ancient and modern Ireland, by a now-forgotten popular author of the early twentieth century, Marah Ellis Ryan. Ryan was a novelist, actress, and activist for Native American rights. This was her only book about Ireland. She tapped a huge body of tales, lore, and song which was being rediscovered at the time by the 'Celtic Twilight' movement. Her social consciousness is in evidence here, particularly in the latter part of the book which is set in modern (i.e. 1917) Ireland.
The author: Marah Ellis Ryan (née Martin; February 27, 1860 or 1866 – July 11, 1934), also known as Ellis Martin, was an author, actress, and activist from the United States. She was considered an authority on Native Americans after living with the Hopi.
