Post # 1
Here's a list of books on Traditional Witchcraft and magic. I'm sure there are dozens of others, so feel free to add your suggestions in the comments!

~Practical Reading~

•Traditional Witchcraft: A Cornish Book of Ways
- Gemma Gary

•A Deed Without A Name: Unearthing the Legacy of Traditional Witchcraft
- Lee Morgan

•Treading the Mill: Practical Craft Working in Modern Traditional Witchcraft
- Nigel G. Pearson

•Call of the Horned Piper
- Nigel Aldcroft Jackson

•The Way of the Shaman
- Michael Harner (Traditional Witchcraft has quite a few shamanistic attributes, making this worth the read)

•Mastering Witchcraft: A Practical Guide for Witches, Warlocks and Covens
- Paul Husson (it’s more Wicca based, but it’s a classic with some very strong points)

•Village Witch
- Cassandra Latham-Jones

•Devon Witchcraft and Folk Ways

*= These are really just spell books with not much else in them. They’re good, but not if you want to understand deeper the spiritual side of Traditional Witchcraft.
