Book Review: Drawing Down the Moon



When I first started reading Drawing Down the Moon, I thought I was going to hate it, because it immediately started referring to all witches as Wiccans, and vice versa. Luckily, the author soon discussed her reasons for this and the book ended up actually being pretty good. Sure, it quoted Isaac Bonewits, whose books really don’t do anything for me, a little too often, but overall it was a fair evaluation of a lot of the groups and literature surrounding modern Paganism. It also didn’t pretend to be about something it wasn’t, nor did it pretend to be an authoritative source.


An interesting book and one that will be useful to anyone studying the modern-day Pagan phenomenon, this is a useful but not entirely necessary read that should be taken with a pinch of salt but still read with an open mind.
