This book covers the symbolism, archetypes & myths of the Traditional Craft, or Old Religion, in the British Isles & Europe. Starting with an exploration of the inner symbology of the old Witchcraft religion, this is followed by a practical treatment of the sacred cycle, the working tools, incantations, spells & pathworking. There are also sections on spirit lines, knots, thread lore & magic, together with ancestral faery teachings. It is a radical & fresh re-appraisal of authentic witch-lore which may provide a working alternative to current mainstream trends in Wicca.

Read it and make up your mind.
I fell in love with this book long before I had even read it, due to all the quotations and references that various other authors had drawn from it. Now, at last reading it first hand, I am not dissapointed. So despite the (in my opinion) poor quality of the presentation and binding, im giving it full marks purely for its content and its value as a starting place.
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.
There are some facts in it that I didn't know and which gave me food for thought. Although I work alone this book gives the new Initiate lots of information on the Craft be it Hedgewytchery or Traditional Witchcraft.
