For quite a few Witches, studying or working in a formal tradition or other kind of group is just not in the cards. Maybe there are none in the area, or if there are, it's not a good match in terms of personality or accessibility. So instead, they walk a solitary path, learning from books and personal experiences. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this approach at all!
