"Stonehenge, Devil's Arrows, Cuchulainn's Stone, Glen Druid...for millennia the Celtic megaliths have stood, their names dark with legend, their meaning only partially deciphered. The brooding presence of these monumental structures still challenges all we presume to know of earth, man, and spirit. Twenty years ago, Paul Caponigro set out to accomplish, through the silver print, what no scientist or philosopher has yet done: to capture the very essence of the stones' mystery."
