They both are worthwhile reading... there is a chapter on shape changing that is very helpful in the one.

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

Any books by Scott Cunningham are good. He has some especilly nice ones for solataries. Silver Ravenwing has LOTS of nice, albeit somewhat comercialized stuff. My personal favorite, however is Patricia Telesco, especially "A Kitchen Witch's Handbook".

I agree Trish Telesco has written some very nice stuff. I love her Victorian Grimore'
Great Book. I believe she writes/published by Samuel Wiser now.

Silver Ravenwolf is really good too. Neither are to "fluffy" . More practicle than some of the writers out there....

A word of caution on Silver Ravenwolf. She tends to be very judgemental abpout Christianity, which is just as bas as someone from another religion being judgemental and prejudiced towards a wiccan. I try not to perpetuate the hatred.

Really!!! HHmm.. I skimmed through her " To ride a silver Broomstick" or whatever it was called.I thought I remembered it being an ok 101 to wicca. HHmm I haven't read anything else by her, but I did an interview with her when that book came out and she *seemed* really down to earth and proactive in the cause for informing the muggles. HHHmmmm ya learn something new everyday.. well, bugger me....

I guess before I recommend I should skim more than one book....... wink.gif

Jennifer Hunter - 21st century Wicca
Caitlin and John Matthews - Ladies of the Lake
D. J. Conway - Celtic Magic (rather limited overview)
Murry Hope - Practical celtic magic (takes a historical view - not all that "practical")
Marion Green - A witch alone
and then there's always Starhawk - The Spiral Dance

Though I tend to shy away from overtly feministic paganism. I am still not sure what I think about Starhawk's book. But then I was 13 when I first read it, so I might be prejudiced. Some of her views are a wee bit forceful.

Another book I discovered recently and that seems to be really interesting is
A Year in a Scots Kitchen: Celebrating Summer's End to Worshipping Its Beginning by Catherine Brown . But then I've always been more interested in the so called Kitchen Witchery biggrin.gif

Always, she is standing by my side

And in her arms is the only place I know

Here are some I have just thought of:


Buckland's Complete book of Witchcraft - Raymond buckland

Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner - Scott Cunningham (kind of fluffy at times, but still a good read)

Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs - Scott Cunningham

Buffalo Woman Comes Singing - Brooke Medicine Eagle (some fluff in here, but has some great exercises)

Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu

to add to your list a bit here are some of my favs.

Living Wicca: A further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham
The Wicca Spellbook by Gerina Dunwich
Book of Shadows by Phyllis Curott (this book follows her journey from finding out about wicca to becominga witch it is my fav!)
