"Victor [Anderson] was a true bard, as evidenced by the beautiful legacy of poetry he infused into the Feri Tradition." "Witch Eye"" "An inspired poet, [Victor Anderson] was a brilliant creator of myth and liturgy. He was allied spiritually with all the indigenous traditions of the planet; a true shaman." Starhawk, author, "The Spiral Dance"" "Victor Anderson, the most important exponent of the Feri faith in America, is also the person responsible for bringing it to this country. Victor has been a teacher and friend to some of the most influential personalities in the Craft today . . . . The name of Victor Anderson is mentioned with a great deal of reverence, as he is one of the few direct descendents of this ancient faith. He is a keeper of the flame." Ellen Evert Hopman, coauthor, "Being a Pagan"" "Victor [Andeson] wrote beautifully poetic rituals for the Faerie tradition. Over the years, a number of remarkable people were trained by Victor . . . . The influence of the shamanic tradition now called 'Feri' has been enormous." Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard" "Victor [Anderson] may be even more influential in the Witch and Pagan movement than Gerald Gardner in the long run. He wrote very little, but his students have burst upon the scene over and over with the most creative and forceful visions of any set of trainees I have ever seen. Either more creative, dynamic and intelligent people were attracted to him, or he truly was exceptional." Penny J. Novack, author, "A Gift for Living"" "This book contains much of Craft lore and symbolism and has been highly praised by members of nearly all Witch traditions. [It] is already a classic." Leo Martello, author, W"itchcraft: the Old Religion" on "Thorns of the Blood Rose"" "Everyone who is interested in the Feri tradition or the work of Victor and Cora Anderson should read this book." Mary K. Greer, author, "Women of the Golden Dawn: Rebels and Priestesses" on "Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition"" "An amazing resource for seeker, student, and initiate alike. . . . It addresses many misconceptions and misunderstandings, and provides many insights I have not found elsewhere. . . . It contains more lore and insight than most books four times its size." Muninn's Kiss, www.TomesOfLore.grimr.org"
