It is about working with boundaries, with a foot in either world, living around the edges and working with liminal times and places. The Hedge Druid's Craft is perfect reading for anyone wanting to take their very first steps along the Traditional Witch or Druid's path beside the hedgerows in search of enchantment. We personally have two dogs, a bird and fish that live in our residence and their energy is amazing. This solution of sorts was pleasing to me, if missing something, though I could not say what. All through the book there is an implicit assertion of the presence of other than human sentience. The photo at the top shows a magical hedge near where I live - in an urban part of south London, not out in the wilds. If you are interested in Witchcraft, Wicca or Druidry, this book will sing to your soul.

My immediate family being something of a trash fire and much but my Irish line being an utter mystery makes this a real sore point for me, especially since my parents passing. ~review by Amber Barnes Author: Joanna Van Der Hoeven Moon Books, 2018 pp.
