Heralded as one of the greatest figures in the history of modern witchcraft, Doreen Valiente made an unparalleled contribution to contemporary spiritual practice. This book tells her fascinating story, from her earliest encounters with the Craft to her work with Gerald Gardner and her emergence as one of the foremost thinkers in the revival of Paganism and witchcraft. Revealing previously unknown details drawn from first-hand testimony and her personal papers, Doreen Valiente Witch reveals how Valiente’s singular vision captivated millions of modern witches and Pagans around the world.

Published in association with the Centre for Pagan Studies and the Doreen Valiente Foundation.

“Doreen Valiente is a shining star, a heroine, and role model for the witchcraft community.”—Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of Witchcraft 

“Doreen Valiente has been called the mother of modern witchcraft and that is no exaggeration. She helped open the path that many of us walk some variation of today, and led the way with a grace and strength we could all hope to emulate.” —Deborah Blake, author of Everyday Witchcraft 

“I am thrilled to see at last a well-researched biography of Doreen Valiente. . . . This is a must read for the historical and personal perspective on the modern adaptations of the Old Religion.”—Ann Moura, author of the Green Witch series

“Doreen Valiente was a seminal influence on the modern magical world. Her lasting contributions to our community are both valuable and vast.”—Tess Whitehurst, author of Holistic Magic

“An amazing story of a strong and powerful-minded woman who truly took her own spirituality by the reigns. . . . The best way to describe this book is that it is not just a biography, but it is a public service and a true gift to the Craft community.”—The Wild Hunt

“It is a wonderful read. . . . Philip Heselton writes beautifully and has researched with his usual care. . . . Above all, he paints Doreen to the life, with accuracy and affection."—Ronald Hutton, Professor of History, University of Bristol
