|Scottish Witchcraft. The History and Magick of the Picts. Raymond Buckland|
I'm enjoying "Scottish Witchcraft: The History and Magick of the Picts" by Raymond Buckland. It is an interesting and informative look at the solitary practices of the PectiWita tradition.
From the ancient misty Highlands of Scotland to modern-day America come the secrets of solitary Witchcraft practice. The author of Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft introduces "PectiWita," or the craft of the Picts. Learn the history of these mysterious early Keltic people, their origins, beliefs, and celebrations. This book also explores the magic, sacred tools, herbal lore, song and dance, and recipes of the Scottish PectiWita tradition.
