Wicca for One

By Raymond Buckland
Citadel Press Books, 2004, $14.95
ISBN 0-8065-2554-1

Review by Erin

Rating: ★★★★½ 

Long time readers of the Journal will remember that I have a really soft spot in my heart for Raymond Buckland, mainly because he’s the founder of my tradition of Wicca. I have a lot to thank him for and a lot to credit him for.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe that he can do no wrong. But I do believe that he gets it right more often than not.

This book, however, tends to be a rehash of many of his other books. The only thing that sets this one apart is that it is developed specifically for those who are solitary.

All the information in this book has been published before in books such as The Tree and Buckland’s Complete Guide to Witchcraft. However, those books, while being excellent sources of information, tend to be centered for those who are going toward covens. This book is modified specifically for those who will be practicing in their own backyards without others to practice with them.

I’m giving this a really high score since it has a lot of good information for you and is something that solitary practitioners should have in their library. But I’m also going to advise you all that if you have The Tree and Buckland’s Complete Guide to Witchcraft you may want to skip purchasing this unless you have the extra money.

I think that this is the logical next step to purchase after Cunningham’s books “Living Wicca” and “Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner”. If those are your only exposure to solitary practice, then you need to buy this book.
