Not the average book about witches

This is not your average book about witches. It contains stories of folklore, mythology and legends of witches from around the world. Each story is very interesting in it's own way. I particularly loved the story 'The First People and the First Corn', which is a North American Indian witch tale and explains how certain things came into being. If you want to learn more about real witch folklore, this book is a must read.

Interesting combination of in-depth research, mythology, cultural enlightenment and entertainment. This book covers the subject of witches like no other - and describes fables and folklore about prominent witches from 50 different countries and cultures.
