Wicca – A guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham (ISBN 0-87542-118-0: Llewellyn)

First printed in 1988, this definitive work on Wicca is in its 25th or 26th edition at present. The book at my disposal is the 23rd edition and was printed in 1999. Cunningham realized that most of the books available were aimed at Covens and compiled this work to address the gap at that time. It was an immediate success.

If you read the book, you will understand why. Cunningham is a one of the few authors who has the skill of painting pictures by using normal words and still succeeds in getting the lesson across in a pleasurable and understandable way. ‘Wicca: A guide for the Solitary Practitioner’ offers the Solitary Seeker both the theoretical knowledge and the practical aspects needed to become and to practice as a Solitary. He also provides a short Book of Shadows in the final section of the work to help the readers on their way. Cunningham does not over-elaborate at all and encourages the assimilation of one’s own personality into the practical aspects of the Craft.

Also available in a Spanish translation, this is a highly recommended book. ‘Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner’ carries a humble price tag of US$9.95, making it affordable to just about anybody.
