Backwoods Witchcraft, Jake Richards offers up a folksy stew of family
stories, lore, omens, rituals, and conjure crafts that he learned from
his great-grandmother, his grandmother, and his grandfather, a Baptist
minister who Jake remembers could "rid someone of a fever with an egg or
stop up the blood in a wound." The witchcraft practiced in Appalachia
is very much a folk magic of place, a tradition that honors the seen and
unseen beings that inhabit the land as well as the soil, roots, and
plant life.The materials and tools used in Appalachia witchcraft are
readily available from the land. This "grounded approach" will be of
keen interest to witches and conjure folk regardless of where they live.
Readers will be guided in how to build relationships with the spirits
and other beings that dwell around them and how to use the materials and
tools that are readily available on the land where one lives.This book
also provides instructions on how to create a working space and altar
and make conjure oils and powders. A wide array of tried-and-true
formulas are also offered for creating wealth, protecting one from
gossip, spiritual cleansing, and more.
