Summary

Summary

In 'Deepening Witchcraft', the founder of the North Wind Tradition of American Witchcraft offers knowledge a well-informed Pagan needs, going beyond the basics contained in most Wiccan titles and explaining many of the skill which must be developed and honed by the more advanced student of Wicca.
