I think this book could have been better, but at the same time it was good to see a more honest approach to Witchcraft and Wicca in the USA. With so many books which make it into print being a waste of paper and leaving its carbon footprint on the world with no contribution, this book is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended to anyone who cares about the truth about their origins, maybe to be read alongside Triumph of the Moon by Ronald Hutton the british author. It is a good and interesting book.
