Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
Once in a while, a great collection comes along in the form of a compact reference book, and that book is Witchcraft Medicine. Greatly illustrated with an entertaining text, this book should be on your home bookshelf and in the public library. It is a memorable reading adventure, full of learning and information to ponder.
Witchcraft Medicine contains a storehouse of knowledge about the healing arts, shamanic practices, and related topics of interest to readers. The authors are experts in their areas of knowledge, and they share that knowledge with the readers.
Following a first-rate introduction, the book goes into depth on its subject matter. An important section in the book is "The Witch as Shaman." As much a historical guide as a reference guide, the book succeeds brilliantly on both fronts.
Readers of the supernatural and paranormal will find the sections on "The Mother of Death" fascinating, and discover information of use for further personal study. A fine reference book, this is one to own.
