Books are ‘people’ in a different
form. I have had to separate books that did not want to be next to each other.
They kept throwing themselves off the shelves. Some books come into our lives
and stay forever, others just ‘pass’ through and leave snippits of themselves
in our heads.
Books for young people are very
important as they provide information about things like ‘what we believe in’. Most traditions and religions have books
explaining their gods, ceremonies, celebrations and special days. But there are
very few for those regarded as pagans. But ours is one of the oldest if not the
oldest belief system in the world.
So I wrote this book for you, whoever is reading it. I wanted to
tell you how the Pagan Way works, what it does, and how it makes you feel. I
want you to know about the Special Days,
about the other invisable life forms
that share the world with us. I want you to know the joy this oldest of all
traditions can bring you. The way of sharing it with humans, elementals,
sprites, animals, plants, trees, and of course other pagans.
As a pagan you are part of a way of
life that began millions of years ago. We have survived that long, and you, little witchlet, boy or girl , need
to claim your inheritance. Blessed Be. - Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki

No-one teaches it better. This book, like its author, oozes real Magic.” – Alan Richardson, author of ‘Earth God Risen’.
