This book is not your traditional, everyday Sabbat book. It is full of fresh new ideas on how to celebrate without confining them to rituals and the very well known foods, oils, and crafts that many other authors mention over and over again. It is innovative and personal. And meant to be read by someone who already knows and appreciates the Sabbats.
The book starts out with a very small preface, that does not go over the "basic" "let's hurry and get this out of the way," info on magick, Wicca, or paganism in general. It contains no in depth Sabbat information or rituals it just gets down to the simple and fun stuff. Each chapter of the book contains around 30 pages for each Sabbat. Each chapter starts off with a personal anecdote for the Sabbat them goes into activities, games, decorating ideas, crafts, recipes (the recipes are all vegetarian,) and finally a cross stitch pattern with instructions for each Sabbat. Most of the crafts and recipes are such that you would not find them anywhere else.
My only compliant with this book is with the recipes, some of them needed further explanation especially on some of the weird vegetarian ingredients like Ives, just what is this and were do I find it. Otherwise, it is a great resource for anyone who celebrates the Sabbat.
