Scottish Witches and Warlocks - Michael Howard
Scottish witchcraft is the subject of this book, ranging from the early witch trials to the modern magicians living in the twentieth century. Howard's works are always dedicated to revealing a local, vivid and often dark continuous history of witch practice in the local regions of the British Isles, and this is no exception. He introduces local customs, rites, spells and cursings, along with colourful characters of the region. A feeling of old witchcraft infuses the book, and it in turn gives the reader a sense of the living haunted landscape of Great Britain - and the traditional witchcraft to which Howard subscribed so passionately.
