My guide for life has always been Heidi, the original, unaltered version. I think it taught me how to cope with unexpected changes in my life, and how to let the Light carry on it's purpose.I learned to read from this book before starting school and still have my original copy, yellowed, scotch taped and dingy. And 2nd is Robin Hood...another life coaching book. After these 2 the thrill falls away dramatically.

As far as craft books, Ann Moura's "Green Magic" series is quite good and teaches well. Among my early books, and the only one's I've held on to over 30+ years, are M. Medici's "Good Magic" which is not Wiccan at all, and the "Grimoire of Lady Sheba" in spite of shortcomings, it is Wiccan. They are not in-depth and don't preach. They're basic and heart-felt, not scholarly. My very 1st intro was Cunningham's "Solitary Wicca" so it holds a special place in my heart, and yet has shortcomings. For history and tying Wicca all together, the works by Raven Grimassi are well done within the restrictions of traditional oath boundaries. He is a better scholar than teacher.

The book I reference most often is probably my copy of The Orphic Hymns (Athanassakis translation). I also pick up Greek Folk Religion (Martin P. Nilsson), and Festivals of the Athenians (H. W. Parke) very often. On the side of things dealing more with witchcraft The Resurrection of the Meadow (Robin Artisson), To Fly By Night (Veronica Cummer), and quite a bit of Cochrane's writings have influenced my path a good bit.
I sing of Artemis, the pure maiden, who cheers on the hounds, the hunter of stags, who delights in archery over the shadowy hills and windy peaks, who draws her golden bow, rejoicing in the chase.
