4.0 out of 5 stars A Witch Without Her Broom, September 18, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Her Hidden Children: The Rise of Wicca And Paganism in America (Paperback)
"her hidden children the Rise of Wicca and Paganism in America" by Chas S. Clifton, is a sobering study into the dark and often misunderstood world of "Wicca", and ..."the Craft."

The book is actually a very well researched text and would make a superb referral book to any college course in Wicca and Paganism in America.
The reality of Wicca's genesis and those who helped mold it's contemporary theology only serves to tarnishes the mystique of the subject matter.

I personally, would have preferred a more flowing "story-book" form of literary expressiveness. This would have allowed the reader to maintain just a wee-bit more of that "magical mystery." However, that thought alone is "magical thinking" and would have been unrealistic.

This is a very good chronological study and academic interpretation of
Witchcraft, and Paganism. Like most religions that have undergone years of transformation, the reader can only wonder; "Was there ever a real honest to goodness witch?"

Clifton's study shows the reader there are many brands of self- proclaimed witchs, but... none with a broom!

In my opinion, this is a 4-star book based on the deep caldron of superb information the author gives to his reader. It should be a constant companion to those who have an honest interest in the truth of religions and those who profess them.
