Aidan Kelly played a part in making a tradition of witchcraft. He has also written several books about the creation of witchcraft and I am glad he let us know that for the most part Wicca and other forms of witchcraft are "creations" of the 20th century yet they are still valid. I like to know the truth and thanks Aidan for telling it so. I got to give him and his group credit as they did the research, the work, and they helped birth a very viable spiritual tradition. This book also gives us insight into the politics of the magical and pagan world which have as of late seem to have merged.
Aidan has come into contact with many heavy weights in the magical pagan world. To mention a few like Starhawk, Victor Andersen,Isaac Bonewitz, and Kerr Cuhulain, just to modestly mention a few. His group started out as a bunch of college students in the San Francisco area studying anthropology during the hippie days. Perfect breeding ground.Read more ›
If you're interested in the craft and in NROOGD this is a good place to read about the roots of the organization and how it developed from a pot luck, beer and dancing group into a on going organization that has lasted four plus decades. Fast read. Lots of background information on the first rituals and their development over a short time.
If read closely you'll be able to figure out the players. All in all, if you are interested in the west coast scene in the and early 70, read the book.
