This book is full of information, however it all has a Wiccan twist. Even the historical data that is given in this tome is suspect and rife with contradicitons to known history.

If you're Wiccan and wish to have a bood that explains everything to you in a way that really matches up with most Wiccan trads, go for it.

If you're a pagan that follows a different path than the prescribed Wicca, don't bother.

I was expecting something more along the lines of a few other books I own and had planned to keep this for my growing personal library...but after reading it and seeing just how skewed the information is, I've decided that it might better serve a person that hasn't been doing this as long as I have.

This is a wonderful reference book for someone in the Craft. It has a lot of information for further reading and studies, as well as ideas for trips to visit museums and such.
The only reason that I am posting it is because I received a second copy as a gift.

Interesting but not what I expected when I ordered it.
