Witches have always been figures electric with possibility, feared as menacing hags but also standing as towering images of female rebellion. Trace their wild ride across the centuries, flying on brooms, turning into animals, making spirit journeys, visiting the dead, casting spells, and causing or healing illnesses. Every age has fashioned this legendary shapeshifter to fulfill its dreams and nightmares, and she has transformed from Renaissance devil worshipper to fairy-tale character to New Age priestess. A brilliant study going far beyond the witch-hunts of the 1600s.
