Publisher's Summary

Regional traditional witchcraft is an animistic form of witchcraft that moves away from the religious harvest festivals and fertility-minded practices associated with the more common Wiccan form of witchcraft. Very few of us in this age are farmers or dependent upon crops and harvests. Regional traditional witchcraft teaches people to find their craft in their own backyards, in the uncultivated land or urban cityscape alike, and in their ancestors rather than in ancient foreign deities or in a neopagan-styled religious form of witchcraft. It's not about where you're from but where you are. 

The material is adaptable to any region in which the practitioner lives. Although the lack of deity worship and holy days is a significant part of the authors' nonreligious approach, this book presents a complete system of practice utilizing ritual, chant, trance, the six paths of witchcraft as defined and explained by the text, and the practices associated with traditional witchcraft.

Less about Witchcraft more about Black Tree's path

This was a pretty decent book, not sure why people are hating on it. The narrator gets a little over the top but it's tolerable.

Love the darker twist

I've been reading a lot of books on witchcraft and other spiritual matters lately, and it has been nice, but something a lot of them have lacked is the darkness. We want to dare! This book goes into those topics and isn't afraid to discuss them. I'm so glad because I was beginning to wonder where I'd be able to learn about that sort of thing. Can't wait for the next book from the Blacktree Coven.

Good book, Narrator a bit mmmmmm

This is lovely writing about Black Tree and the practice of magick. The narrator is a little pretentious sounding, but if you can get past the drama, you can find very useful spells rituals, and rites.
