Of the nearly 2 dozen books written by Pagan author Gerina Dunwich, I consider this one (along with Herbal Magick, Wicca Garden, and Your Magickal Cat) to be her finest. I highly recommend it for all beginners and intermediate students of the art of witchcraft. It covers all aspects of spellcasting, including historical perspectives and practical applications. Good for any and all traditions. The book does not focus on any of the religious aspects of Wicca, so if you're looking for a book about theology, you should look elsewhere. But if you're interested in learning about, and practicing, folk-magick, this is definitely the book you should read. It is not fluffy, preachy, or corny (as are so many books of this genre in this day and age.) Dunwich includes many wonderful and easy-to-follow spells to use, as well as sound advice on crafting your own. Explore this one - you won't be disappointed!
