This review is from: The Call of the Horned Piper (Paperback)
This is an excellent work on traditional witchcraft being an easy to read overview of the beliefs and practices of those following a path pre-dating Gardener and the revival of the 50s.
Nigel Jackson's own unique artwork is to be found throughout this book which adds to the feel and atmosphere. Jackson is obviously well read in folklore as well as his Craft as there are many fascinating references to the myths and legends of our ancestors. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the book for me, though, is the way he deals with the subject of the witches' Sabbat which is both an eye-opener for those who are new to this kind of Craft and a clear sign of true magical knowledge to those with experience.
