Originally published in 1974 as "The Tree," this work was groundbreaking in that it was the first published account of Craft rituals and perhaps more importantly, allowed for self-initiation, so those would-be practitioners of the craft far from a coven could participate too.
An OK book just not my type of witchcraft I suppose. Very male-female oriented though, to be fair, Buckland acknowledges this and does not really encourage LGBT members to pursue his tradition (because of the male-female/fertility focus, not homophobia.)
