This 1986 classic is not only an excellent introduction to the Wiccan religion and earth-based religions in general, but a workbook which can take the serious student to the equivalent level of third degree Gardnerian. Though Raymond Buckland was a student of the late great Gerald Gardner, this manual does not adhere to a specific branch or denomination of witchcraft, but seeks to teach the elements and philosophies common to all whether Celtic, Saxon, Finnish or what have you. Buckland is credited with bringing the "old religion" to the US and covens and solitary witches practising the craft in the US today have him to thank for getting it out of the closet. While Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft is a must-have for any serious Wiccan practitioner, it is full of down-to-earth spiritual wisdom which makes it a wonderful addition to the library of any broad-minded seeker on the path toward the One. --P Randall CohanReview:
"A masterwork by one of the great Elders of the Craft. Raymond Buckland has presented a treasure trove of Wiccan lore. It is a legacy that will provide magic, beauty, and wisdom to future generations of those who seek the ancient paths of the Old Religion."--Ed Fitch, author of Magical Rites from the Crystal Well
"I read Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft with much pleasure. This book contains enough information and know-how for all approaches: the historical, the philosophical, and the pragmatic...quite entertaining, as much for the armchair enthusiast as for the practicing occultist."--Marion Zimmer Bradley, author of The Mists of Avalon
"Never in the history of the Craft has a single book educated as many people, spurred as many spiritual paths, or conjured as much personal possibility as Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft. More than just a treasured classic, it is the one book that no seeker should ever be without!"--Dorothy Morrison, author of The Craft
"This book was one of the first to guide me on the path of my Craft. Detailed yet non-threatening, educational yet fun --I spent hours pouring over this book in my early days and still refer to it now sometimes for a 'refresher'! I highly recommend this book as an important introduction to the Craft in this modern age."--Fiona Horne, author of Witch: A Magickal Journey
"A huge work of excellent materials. Buckland has lifted the last thin veil about Witchcraft, releasing it back into the mainstream to be a folk religion as it used to be."--Z Budapest, author and activist
"Based on Raymond Buckland's successful Seax-Wica Seminary course, this classic book is essential reading for all persons seriously interested in the art and religion of Witchcraft. The insight it provides is beneficial for solitaries and covens alike, making it well-deserving of a place in every Witch's personal library."--Gerina Dunwich, author of Wicca Craft and The Wicca Spell Book
