To Ride a Silver Broomstick by is great introduction to witchcraft book that put Silver Ravenwolf on the map. Silver Ravenwolf's writing style is easy to read. This book is an enjoyable and explains the craft and general concepts in a story format, unlike the Solitary Witch, which is written like a user guide or textbook that helps a witch to do magick. This book contains great personal stories from the author’s life, covering everything from her challenges as she discovered her path to moments as she embarked upon the craft like a clothing-optional festival. It presents information effortlessly, knowledge hidden in every anecdote.
Generally speaking, this book is targeted at a younger demographic than Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner Book by Scott Cunningham and tends to focus on the modern young person entering the craft, but accomplishes the same objective of giving the reader a solid foundation in the craft. Silver Ravenwolf tends to be a bit more proscriptive than Scott Cunningham, and she often espouses her point of view as fact, rather than a perspective. However, she gives good information and I would simply challenge the reader to question and make sure that they are true to themselves.
