My kind of book!,
This review is from: A Deed Without a Name: Unearthing the Legacy of Traditional Witchcraft (Paperback)
This is a fascinating book digging into the history and fact behind the different myths and legends that make up the legacy of Witchcraft.
Giving insight and interesting details on many of the facets of the Craft that we use now such as hedge crossing, fetch beasts and familiars and hag riding.
I found myself nodding as I read this book, agreeing with so many of the statements and also learning some history along the way.
To be honest the author had me hooked with one line in the first few pages
"Those who consult scholarship too often err on the side of the arm-chair occultist, reading tomes upon tomes of books and journal articles, practicing `witchcraft in the head' without finding a way to bridge the gap between scholarship and practice".
I knew it was going to be my kind of book!
This book not only includes lots of research and history it also includes ideas and exercises to work through.
It should definitely be on your bookshelf.
