Earth power - Scott Cunningham

The way he writes feels like I am reading a chat from an old friend as well. Easy to read and comforting.

I have recently bought this book. Unfortunately, I bought it with a lot of other books at the same time, which means I've only had a chance to read the intro, so far. But so far, I like where it's going and I can see it being helpful to me. I do expect at some point he will give the moral lecture about 'doing no harm', but I just move on when I read that in his books.

I have this book and the one that goes with it, something along the lines of "more Earth Power..." I like them, except for the candy coating of the craft- they can get very wiccan preachy about some things. But, I still refer back to them. They seem to function much like I do, using simple spells with whatever is on hand. Nothing showy about them. (On a beach? Use the sand, the wind, the tide and your intention!) I have found that they are excellent launch points, a means of inspiration for my own work, and I have always thought that's the best way to create the changes/actions you want to make/take- create your own. I have a few of his other books, with more herbal leanings as that's my thing. Again. good springboards for my own work.

I've read it a little more, and I agree with the above comments. I feel as though you can't go wrong with Scott's nature focus. He also does seem to, despite being a Wiccan, delve into the history and tradition of how things were done. I feel as though this books gives great ideas to start you off, and plenty of wiggle room to make it your own.
