The book is, The ABC Of Charms: A Revised And Expanded Edition by Elizabeth Pepper.
This book was written by Elizabeth Pepper, a founding editor of The Witch's Almanac.
This book is filled with lore of many various herbs, stones, amulets, talismans, and other objects. The book is a lite read and keeps the reader's attention. The only main problems I have with the book is that some of the information is incorrect. For example, under John the Conqueror Root, Pepper claims that one should not use Jalap Root and that the real John the Conqueror Root is the sweet potato. Sorry but the sweet potato is far to large to use as a whole John the Conqueror root and Jalap Root has been used as John the Conqueror Root for some time now. Under lodestone, Pepper claims that lodestones are placed in water. Lodestones are made of iron and will rust if this is done. Instead, lodestones are fed with whisky or other strong alcohol. If the reader can get past the incorrect information presented in the book it will help create a better or more enjoyable reading experience.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this book a 5.
