Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft
by Raymond Buckland (Introduction)
This 1986 classic is not only an excellent introduction to the Wiccan religion and earth-based religions in general, it's also a workbook that can take the serious student to the equivalent level of third-degree Gardnerian. Though Raymond Buckland was a student of the late great Gerald Gardner, this manual does not adhere to a specific branch or denomination of witchcraft, but rather seeks to teach the elements and philosophies common to all, whether Celtic, Saxon, Finnish, or what have you. Buckland is credited with bringing the "old religion" to the U.S., and covens and solitary witches practicing the craft in the U.S. today have him to thank for getting it out of the closet. While Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft is a must-have for any serious Wiccan practitioner, it is full of down-to-earth spiritual wisdom, which makes it a wonderful addition to the library of any broadminded seeker on the path toward the One. --P.

Embracing the Moon : A Witch's Guide to Rituals, Spellcrafts and Shadow Work
by Yasmine Galenorn
From traditional notions such as the idea that a mirror facing a door is a magical portal, to contemporary ideas like the construction of a magical collage from magazine clippings, Galenorn successfully combines the old with the new in this accessible guide to witchcraft. Emphasis on witchcraft, because from the start, Galenorn firmly states that she is a witch, not Wiccan, and while she has nothing against Wicca, she strongly feels the two are not the same. While this viewpoint may
 consternate some readers, she has a point. Compared to the methods of most covens, her work is  much less formal, which many beginners or solitary practitioners will find attractive and which also makes this a good book to read if you find yourself in a magical rut. --Brian Patterson,

Living Wicca : A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Llewellyn's Practical Magick)
by Scott Cunningham (Introduction)
Living Wicca is the perfect companion to Cunningham's Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner, containing the same concise and comprehendible style that makes the first book so enjoyable. With Living Wicca, Cunningham goes beyond the mechanics of the faith and emphasizes the importance of making Wicca a part of your everyday life. Focusing on the solitary practitioner, Cunningham encourages you to make your own path within the Wiccan tradition, and offers simple suggestions, from recycling to visiting the park, that heighten your spiritual awareness of the mundane world. --Brian Patterson  -

Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner
by Scott Cunningham
Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner is the essential primer from one of the best known authors on Wicca. Focusing on the importance of individualism in your spiritual path, Cunningham explains the very basics of Sabbats (holy days), ceremonies, altars, and other nuts and bolts of Wicca that a solitary practitioner may have trouble finding elsewhere. While Wicca shouldn't be your sole point of reference when considering Wicca as your way of life, it is one of the best starting points. --Brian Patterson -
