Buckland's Book of Saxon Witchcraft was one of the first books to explore Wicca from a solitary perspective. Originally written 30 years ago to correct abuses he saw occurring in covens, Buckland offered Wiccan seekers an introductory text on Saxon witchcraft or Seax-Wicca, which can be practiced alone. Buckland presents meticulously researched information on the time-honored tradition of Saxon witchcraft. He writes cogently and informatively about the history, mythology, spiritual practices, and witchcraft of Saxon England. Buckland's Book of Saxon Witchcraft includes everything the solitary witch needs to practice Seax-Wicca, including: Descriptions of the Saxon deities and explanations of their primary beliefs An introduction to the magical runic Saxon alphabet A selection of original Pagan songs A selection of Seax-Wiccan recipes for intoxicants Instructions for initiation ceremonies, the eight Sabbats, marriage, birth, and death rites An explanation of the art and practice of Saxon Galdra or magic and the divination and herbal lore used for protection, love potions, and healing The Seax-Wicca Rite of Self-Dedication, which allows individuals to form their own covens and initiate themselves into the Craft
An indispensable handbook for solitary witches or for witches in covens who want to explore Saxon witchcraft. Originally published as The Tree: The Complete Book of Saxon Witchcraft, this edition offers a new introduction by the author to guide a new generation of witches into the art and practice of Seax-Wicca.

A rather famous book and it has become a classic among books over Wicca and witchcraft since it was first published. It covers a lot of material to say the least. Perhaps the only big true downside to this is its very age. The historical viewpoints on the origins of Wicca and the general viewpoint over all has changed a fair amount as it has spread and grown. Because of the change this book is perhaps not the best book for a beginner to read right off the bat. Regardless though its still a fairly good book which covers a wide verity of topics in a kind of workbook style.more
A good basic workbook to jump your own search off on.more
Not a bad book for an information source but not something I would follow word for word. Basically purchased as a reference tool when needed for some aspects and a good introductory book for those who are curious about the Garderian path. Not suited for those who are solitary practitioners, more directed at coven work but all the same informative.more
This book is one of the 'beginner' books often found in Pagan collections. It's not a bad book- there's plenty of good info in it, but more recent books have much more refined information in it. Great for people coming out of strict religions- lots of rules. For those of us who aren't terribly fond of 'thou shalts', the book is more limited in its scope, but it's still a decent snapshot of How Things Were (and aren't any more) in Wicca.more
A workbook type book based on Wiccan beliefs mainly. Very good for a solitaire witch. (Xyaida)more
I did not enjoy this book. That is to say that perhaps it is because I am not practicing under any specific tradition, I found the writing very limiting (i.e. "you MUST do this or you MUST do that").I am aware that traditions do require certain things to make them thus - but this is definitely not the way I practice.more
