For those more familiar with Wicca as styled by Scott Cunningham, Edain McCoy or even Raymond Buckland this book takes some serious adjustments. Most people forget that Wicca when it was founded by Gerald Gardner and then the Alexandrian Tradition founded by Alex and Maxine Sanders was a coven based religion and continues to be so today.
This book is a perfect text for those who are interested in Traditional Wicca but are not quite ready to contact a coven. This text was my introduction to Traditional Wicca several years ago and remains to be one of my go to books when I need a refresher on Traditional Wicca. There are several practices that are discussed in many books on Wicca that I feel this book covers the areas that are "missing".
If you are interested in Traditional Wicca this book is perfect for you. If you are looking to learn more about the early forms of Wicca prior to the solitary traditions this book will cover that. If you are interested in what religious witchcraft looks like this book is for you. If you are looking for instant initiation, solitary rituals and spells this is not your book.
There are some spells and rituals in the book. In this book they provide context to how Wiccan coven rituals may run and what sabbat rituals could entail. None of the rituals or spells within this book can really be performed solitary. It comes from a coven based tradition so it will have a different feel than other books.
real American stuff.
