An initiation into our history and our wisdom
August 2020 Book of the Month
Aspiring witches 9 years and older will find this an invaluable and empowering guide, filled with authentic detail and strikingly illustrated. With the supernatural wisdom of modern-day witches Elsa Whyte and Julie Legere and Laura Perez's rich artwork, step into your dark sisterhood and discover the Secrets of the Witch.
Part history, part spellbook, this magical compendium gives young witches a fascinating insight into the lives and practices of witches throughout time and from all over the world. Since ancient times, magic and witchcraft have inspired both fear and fascination. More recently, witchcraft has become a popular symbol for feminist empowerment.
Everything a beginning witch needs to know is contained in Secrets of the Witch. Uncover the meaning and history behind magical tools and symbols such as cauldrons and pentagrams, find out the truths of the Salem Witch Trials and learn about witches in popular culture, from the ancient figure of Circe to Hermione Granger. This spellbinding guide explores the mystical history of witches throughout time and all over the world, including their magical symbols and practices. Initiates to the ways of the witch will learn the stories of legendary and real-life witches, as well as how to make their own talisman, how to use magical crystals and plants, which familiar is right for them and so much more.
A strikingly illustrated handbook for aspiring tween and teen witches, exploring the history of witches with a feminist slant. -- Fiona Noble - The Bookseller, August Previews
