For those with an interest in Traditional Wicca here are some books thatI would suggest to better your understanding of it. Granted since much of the information about Trad Wicca is oathbound you won't find all the answers in these books. But they will certainly give you a taste of the flavor of Trad Wicca.

"Witchcraft Today" by Gerald Gardner
"The Meaning of Witchcraft" by Gerald Gardner
"High Magick's Aid" by Gerald Gardner (fiction)
"The Witch's Bible Complete" by Janet and Stewart Farrar (Contains the
books "What Witches Do" and "Eight Sabbats for Witches"
"Lid off the Cauldron" by Patricia Crowther
"High Priestess" by Patricia Crowther
"Witch Blood" by Patricia Crowther
"The Training and Work of an Initiate" by Dion Fortune
"Wiccan Roots" by Philip Heselton
"Gerald Gardner and the Cauldron of Inspiration" by Philip Heselton
"Triumph of the Moon" by Ronald Hutton
"The Goat Foot God" by Dion Fortune (fiction)
"Lammas Night" by Katherine Kurtz (fiction)
"The Rebirth of Witchcraft" by Doreen Valiente
"Wicca: The Old Religion in the New Millenium" by Vivianne Crowley

Give these a try and I think you'll have a far better understanding of Trad Wicca and perhaps find that it is something you'd like to explore further.

Merry Meet everyone
Thanks for letting me join. Christopher Pencsak has a whole series of the different temples of witchcraft,most are 500 or more pages, that are really good for serious study. I am currently trying to finish one of them up for my initatation as a High Priest at the Yule sabbat. He also puts out a monthly newsletter you can subscribe to. His books have high reviews and do get deep at times. BB Jim

Unfortunately, Jim, while Christopher Penczak is a really good guy (a friend of mine, in fact) and a terrific witch, he's not a British Traditional initiate. His material is interesting and insightful, but will not do anything to help someone understand British Traditional Wicca. Blessings.

I recently and enjoying-ly read a book that fits well into this category, "Dancing With Witches" by Lois Bourne, who was brought to her first coven by Gerald Gardner.

 

I am also reading a book which by rights should not exist, "Witchcraft and the Book of Shadows: The Definitive Record of the Practices of Wicca" which is a compilation of notes from Gerald B. Gardner and includes comparisons and commentary on several published Gardnerian books of shadow, introduction by Kate West. I-H-O Books, 2004.
