Read full description of the books:
One of the first introductory Wicca books that I read as a teenager.
It consists mostly of the usual tables of correspondence found in reference books, concerning colors, incense, herbs and the like. Gerina walks the reader very briefly through the basics of Wiccan practice, giving an overview of altars, tools, handfastings, Esbats and the Sabbats. She includes a few bare bones rituals to accompany the celebrations and holy days, but neglects to provide any information about why the rituals are important, or the symbolism of the actions contained therein. This does newcomers a great disservice, because not understanding the why behind the how results in a ritual practice that is hollow.
The section on wort cunning is surprisingly extensive for such a short volume, but is only enough to whet a reader's appetite for a more in-depth textual resource. Also interesting are the short chapters concerning "Tree Magic", "Dream Magic" and "Talismans". She's one of the few authors I've come across who writes about the use of word squares as talismans. Dunwich tends to draw from a wide range of sources for her spellcraft, which is more in the vein of Paul Huson than Scott Cunningham, in that it isn't whitewashed, and frequently contains spells that would border on unethical for most Wiccan practitioners.
Overall, this guide has more in common with an aperitif than the main course: It never does more than skim the surface of the numerous subjects it touches on, and that lack of deeper material will have the reader putting it aside in search of more satisfying fare.
