Wild Witchcraft: Folk Herbalism, Garden Magic, and Foraging for Spells, Rituals, and Remedies by Rebecca Beyer
I really enjoyed this look at witchcraft through the lens of folk herbalism and foraging. it's a real hands-in-the-dirt view of traditional witchcraft and how directly a practice can be build and tied into the land around you. it's a great look at living with and relating to plants as a witch. I was charmed to see so many of the plants with deep and informative descriptions were already plant friends in my garden as well as a color illustration of my beloved hori hori knife!
