Hedge witches were traditionally known as those who lived on the outskirts of the village. They had all soprts of knowledge of herbs, plants and various shamanistic techniques. Hedgewitches also used to travel to the spirit world and venture over to the otherside.

This book focuses on magic that can be done at home and most preferably in the hearth or the kitchen. The home is important which is why the author focuses on it. It is a place of centering and strength and hence the most important aspe

Recommends it for: Anybody who may have an interest in this sort of thing who has an open mind.
Recommended to KJ by: Nobody, I just gave it a chance.
Despite criticisms from some sources, this book delivers what it promises, no more no less.

Whats good:
It is easy to read, clear, and concise to those new to witchcraft, and those too busy for an archaic trudge-read. It is light to read but contains some nice little snippets of back-history, which in a way I prefer as a looker to the future, it doesn't bog you down with talking in riddles, elitist snobbery and long in depth historical details. It is witchcraft for the Modern practitioner.

Great book for someone who wants to read about simple, down to earth, home based witchcraft. A word of caution though: the name is misleading. I've always connected the term hedge witch to green witchcraft and this book is definitely not about that. Minus points for usage of of the term smudging, which is cultural appropriation, and the slightly disparaging feel I got from the way the author writes about feminism.

Although I enjoyed the new perspective on spirituality and the home, this definitely isn't one of my favorite books. I wasn't thrilled with the overall writing style and the layout (particularly how so many things were repeated about a thousand times through the book), but I did find a few things I made note of for possible tweaking and use. From what I know about the more "natural/simple" forms of spirituality and witchcraft, I would not call this "Hedge Witchery," and that term isn't even real ...more

Some nice recipes but incorrectly titled IMO. Either that or the author learned about hedgies from Rae Beth or even $ilver Ravenwolf. Hearth witch, kitchen witch or cottage witch are much more appropriate titles.

I enjoyed the book quite a bit. Murphy-Hiscock writes in a very relate-able tone.
