This is a wonderful collection of Doreen's writings, prose and poems. Many are familiar with some of the texts, but this lets you see images of the originals plus interesting ritual items that she had used. The memories of her written by those who knew her and worked with her also is wonderful and adds more depth to those of us who never knew her except by her works. It is a wonderful memorium to her and her spirit.

I like how this book has been put together. There are Doreen's (I assume) drafted and typewritten poems (often with cross-outs and notations) and there are photos of some of Doreen's witchcraft tools, as another reviewer stated. Some of these poems I have seen in other places, but some I have not. From other books I have read about Doreen Valiente, I surmise that Doreen is the true founder of Wicca, as much of the liturgy is attributed to her. Gerald Gardner would have been lost without her, and Wicca never would have gained the popularity in our time, especially among women. I am not Wiccan, but I appreciate Doreen's contribution to providing an ethical view of Witchcraft. She made it easier for many to come out of the broom closet.

A book by Doreen Valiente can at times be expensive to get for they
go out of print. So when I see one of her books at a good price
I get it.
This is a very good example of Doreen's book and mind set.
Wonderful to be able to put it in my book collection.

This book is a must have from the mother of the modern Witchcraft movement. It is a small book with her poetry, pictures of her ritual items, herself, and notes form those that new and loved her. This book is a treasure and a part of our history. May she live on in her writings and each time we recite her words we praise her!
