I remember purchasing this book as a teenager, and over the years I have returned to it many times. One of the marks of a truly great book is that you can find something new within it every single time. The book may be small but it is simply jam packed with so many techniques that it could take years to fully learn them all!
The book is written by Raymond Buckland, he is one of my favorite authors and a very prolific one. Raymond Buckland is a British author and of Romany Gypsy decent. One of the best parts of the book, is that he provides a great glimpse into Romany culture and beliefs. I have always been entranced by the Romany life, as a traveling nomadic culture, they have such a beautiful perspective, we rarely have a an opportunity to view.
