Sometimes I wonder how I manage to miss books for as long as I do. For years I have been bemoaning the scarcity of books devoted to the people of Witchcraft instead of just the basic "nuts and bolts" (the "101" books). This book has been on the market for years and I just discovered it.

The Introduction to this book gives some of the basics people should know to have a basic understanding of our religion. The rest of the book, however, is more in the nature (if you'll pardon the pun" of short biographies/philosophies of a dozen different Witches running the gamut from Doreen Valiente to Patricia Kennealy Morrison. Some of them are household names in the Pagan community and some are lesser-known individuals.

In every case, the individuals are careful to make clear that they are not trying to indicate how others should see the Craft, or how they should practice. What they are conveying is how they, as individuals, see and practice their Craft.

It was a real pleasure to read the thoughts of the individuals contained here. I was already familiar with some of those philosophies, but I found myself learning a great deal. It is a good chance for people to learn how others think about the Craft.
