VIVIANNE CROWLEY - WICCA
A Comprehensive Guide to the Old Religion in the Modern World
A classic! It's unique in that it brings together insights from Jungian Psychology and Wiccan practice, highly recommended.
THORN MOONEY - TRADITIONAL WICCA
A Seeker's Guide
Whilst this book is predominantly aimed at the US market it is still a useful guide to the general process of "seeking" and is packed full of tips for people looking for a traditional group to practice with (including common red flags). It is however not an introduction to Wicca, for that I recommend Vivianne's book (see above).
CHRISTOPHER PENCZAK - SONS OF THE GODDESS
A Young Man's Guide to Wicca
One of the comparatively rarer books that offers an insight into what Wicca offers to the male practitioner.
PAUL PEARSON & TALLIS HARRILL - THE MOUNTAIN & THE STREAM
Rural Animism and Pagan Practices
Not a book about Wicca as such, it gives really interesting insight into two initiatory rural traditions (in Cheshire/UK and Tuscany/Italy) which explore our relationship with our landscape, and that is something that many pagans, witches and Wiccans can relate to.
