Selling more than 300,000 copies, this popular guide to the Craft has been helping a new generation of Witches-those practicing or wishing to practice the Craft on their own-for over a decade. Filled with Silver RavenWolf's warmth, humor, and personal anecdotes, To Ride a Silver Broomstick introduces the science and religion of the craft.
Silver RavenWolf is one of the most widely recognized names in circles of witchcraft, and with good reason; she has written some of the best guides to contemporary Witchcraft available. To Ride a Silver Broomstick is a handbook aimed at the beginner, and doesn't get bogged down in history, dogma, or gender roles. It is a workbook for the individual, whether one is a solitary practitioner or part of a coven, that covers the basics of the craft--from useful vocabulary to setting up an altar--and briefly delves into more advanced concepts such as astral projection and telepathy. To Ride a Silver Broomstick may not be the most comprehensive single volume on the subject of witchcraft, but RavenWolf focuses on the aspects most important to a beginner, and keeps her introduction to the craft approachable and easy to follow. --Brian Patterson
From the Publisher
Every so often, a book has a special spark. That is the case with To Ride a Silver Broomstick by Silver RavenWolf. Sure, it is an excellent source of information on Witchcraft, but it's also much more. It is a personal book that shares RavenWolf's heart and soul. And that is one of the reasons I believe this book has become so popular.
RavenWolf tells some amazing stories in here. Her description of her first experience at a clothing-optional festival is hilarious. Her frustrations during childhood while searching for her spiritual path are touching. Her tale of a woman who assumed that the help she received from RavenWolf may have been the cause of a health problem (it wasn't) leads to thinking about modes of healing and the importance of the mindset of the person being healed.
What an incredible delight this book is! Not only is it personal and fun to read, but it also presents its facts so effortlessly that I was surprised at just how much information there really is in this book. She covers all of the basic theology, including the God and Goddess and the celebratory Wheel of the Year. Most of the book, however, is focused on magick. She gives numerous rituals and rites, and shows how to design your own. She also gives many spells that anyone can work. Other topics include healing, the Tarot (including timing, a rarely discussed subject), color and candle magick, and much more. I especially liked her lexicon of Witchcraft words. Knowing these terms would make a person more comfortable at any Pagan gathering.
I really hope you will consider getting this book. I have no doubt that you will find it enchanting and entertaining as well as astute and wise. I know you'll love it!

Although, I would do further research into the history she gives in her books.

Don't be swayed by know it all's who would detract from this little gem because there are and never will be anyone who know's all and if you find someone who claims superior status when it come's to being in relationship with the Lady and Lord, the good people or the elementals do an about face, go home open up "Broomstick" or any other of Silver's books and get in communion with the only perfect one's you'll ever meet. Also check out Ray Bucklands big blue book. The Farrar's Witches Bible and Scott Cunningham, Laurie Cabot, Orion Foxwood and of course Pappa Gardener and you'll be on your way.
