'Revealing the secrets of ancient rituals and the philosophy of witchcraft, this book delves deep into modern witchcraft. The nature of the rites are shown to revolve around traditional witchcraft passed down from ancient times, rather than the modern Gardnerian and Alexandrian versions. 
Jones gives revelatory information on the members and oaths of the coven, it's working tools and regalia from the stangs to the skull, rituals for the great sabbats, handfasting, purification and the royal cairn. The age-old rites are recalled and re-worked for today, as the book shows witchcraft can be a practical, working faith.'
