    Book Description: Stephen A. Mitchell here offers the fullest examination available of witchcraft in late medieval Scandinavia. He focuses on those people believed to be able-and who in some instances thought themselves able-to manipulate the world around them through magical practices, and on the responses to these beliefs in the legal, literary, and popular cultures of the Nordic Middle Ages. T Thorn Coyle's Evolutionary Witchcraft book is also really good and based on Feri Tradition rather than Wicca. Yasmine Galenorn's Embracing The Moon is okay too. I'm not a huge fan of hers, but this is a decent book on magic and spellcraft without really being too religious.
