The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New Generation
This book has everything a teen Witch could want and need between two covers: a magickal cookbook, encyclopedia, dictionary, and grimoire. It relates specifically to today's young adults and their concerns, yet is grounded in the magickal work of centuries past.
Information is arranged alphabetically and divided into five distinct categories: (1) Shadows of Religion and Mystery, (2) Shadows of Objects, (3) Shadows of Expertise and Proficiency, (4) Shadows of Magick and Enchantment, and (5) Shadows of Daily Life. It is organized so readers can skip over the parts they already know, or read each section in alphabetical order.
- By the author of the best-selling Teen Witch and mother of four teen Witches
- A jam-packed learning and resource guide for serious young Witches
- All categories are discussed in modern terms and their associated historical roots
- Includes endnotes and footnotes that cite sources or add clarification
- A training companion to Teen Witch and To Ride a Silver Broomstick
"Welcome to the Encyclopedia Britannica of spells, magic, and witchcraft. Written in a conversational, enticingly direct style, Solitary Witch is a massive, weighty compendium of ancient and modern Wiccan ideas and teachings. RavenWolf contrasts self-assure dinner radiance, which is everyone's heritage, and low self-esteem. Such advice is beneficial to younger people under constant peer and consumer pressures. RavenWolf presents blueprints for living well based on millennia of magical information...the appeal of this well-conceived book crosses several disciplines."—New Age Retailer
"Solitary Witch is for those serious about the Wiccan craft: it's a book for new witches who seek and understanding of the history and culture of magic in the Western world, and it includes bits and pieces of information the serious practicing witch might find useful. From charms and plantings to rituals and the history of herbal codes, this is packed with insights and advice for new generation witches. All are unique, important guides for new age readers."Midwest Book Review<
"Excellent for the new witch...her best work yet."—The Witchtower

Filled with spells and lore, information on astrology and ritual and magick, there are pages and pages of information which are well organized, making this not only a repository of all that a teen could yearn for in a book, but one which will be loved and used. Excellent work in this book, and it's affordable for teens as well."—The Unicorn
