Hedge Witch :Guide to Solitary Witchcraft by Rae Beth
Being a solitary witch, I thought this book would be a fountain of information which I may have never come across before and overlooked. I always enjoy looking into the thoughts of others and the way they approach the craft.
The Book is a series of letters sent by the author to a couple who are tentively taking their first steps into the craft. This attracted me to the book as I thought this format would be easy to read as opposed to the usual chapter format of most books - how many of us have skipped chapters of a book that seemed to be extremly slow going to say the least!
However, I was dissapointed to find the book format heavy going and irritating. To me there are a few fundemantal 'mistakes' in the way the author views the craft. A simple example is the view that witchcraft can be traced back many thousands of years before the advent of christianity - Im sorry but being a historian and a witch, I can say that this is not the case. The author also suggests that the old ways in European witch craft have been lost due to the era of witch burning - yet again, this is not true.I found the oppinions of the author being put across as facts and there is no documented evidence to make the authors oppinions as facts.
I have read many simpler books that I would recommend to the novice to read and this book is far from simple to read. There was alot of good information contained in its pages but on the whole I found the book heavy going and full of misconceptions that do the craft no good at all.
