5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and "Unputdownable"
I am on the druid path, but also interested in natural magic. I have already read a couple of books on the subject which I have researched by public opinion, and which I have found to be "fair". Only yesterday did I receive my copy of this book. I find it beautiful and "unputdownable". The author clearly reveres her path and it shows. The language is wonderful and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Strictly for beginners
After reading such enthusiastic reviews here on Amazon and having respected Marian Green's work for a good many years I was tempted into buying A Witch Alone, which I was expecting to provide me with a course of serious disciplined study. I was thoroughly disappointed; this book is strictly for beginners. If you are totally new to the Craft and want to get to grips with...

If you are a witch without a coven, going it alone, and you can only buy one book, this is the one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Depends on what you mean by witchcraft....., 15 Jan 2012
By 
This review is from: A Witch Alone: Thirteen Moons to Master Natural Magic (Paperback)
According to the cover this book has sold over 50,000 copies..... so it must be giving some of the magically interested public what they want.

And what many people want (and think is "witchcraft") is a safe, pretty, folksy, wise women/cunning man sort of practise. Grow some herbs, meditate under the moon, attune yourself to the seasons. Divine, dowse, talk to your plants, heal. Hug a tree.

There's nothing wrong with this. It's a bit New Agey, but Marian Green was teaching it before the New Age was even born. She has (as some other reviewers have pointed out) a rather romanticised idea of country life and The Old Days, and her history is a bit skewed towards her own views, but this is common to many Wiccan writers.

So if you want a nice non-threatening, suburban "witchcraft", let this book be your guide. Nothing suggested here can hurt you or, if you think of Mother Nature as a kindly goddess, shake up your preconceptions. There are excercises rather than rituals for you to try, and extra reading is suggested at the end of each chapter.

But do be aware that there is something else out there, not so pretty and a lot more powerful, ready to be tapped if you know the right path. This is also called "witchcraft" by many, although I doubt if you'll ever find any books about it on Amazon......

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 6 Dec 2012

This review is from: A Witch Alone: Thirteen Moons to Master Natural Magic (Paperback)
This down to earth account of what it means to follow the old path is extremely helpful to those starting out on the path. The writer is very experienced, practical and deeply spiritual. One of my must keep books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beginners only!, 28 April 2011
This review is from: A Witch Alone: Thirteen Moons to Master Natural Magic (Paperback)
I was so excited to get this book! What a dissapointment. The way the pages are layed out in massive chunks of writing with no gap to seperate the paragraphs is really hard for me to focus. I got half way through and just couldn't read any more, i dont like the way she writes really. I found it hard to take in what was written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for a general overview, 19 July 2001
By A Customer
This book is good for those people who do not follow any specific path - simply calling themselves Pagan. It isn't in depth enough for the experienced witch but brilliant to give to your parents to educate them on what you're really up to. Who knows, they might even enjoy it?
