This book truly is a treasure trove! It includes over 500 samples of folklore, stories, artifacts, rituals, belief and more. This hefty book is well worth the price and a true comprehensive collection of Folk Magic.
The author includes subjects on divination, flying, familiars, magical heritage, protection, communicating with spirits, various practices, healing and so much more. The book has the weight and size of an academic book but is written in an easy to follow way that is well researched and presented.
The book can be used for the beginner wanting to learn or the advanced practitioner, this versatile book has something for everyone. The writing style reminds me of that college professor who has a great sense of humor and loves what they are teaching. (Also if you are a fan of the New World Witchery Podcast, chances are very high that you will also love this book).
Whether you are looking for a guide or just information, I recommend adding this mammoth book on folk magic to your magickal shelves!
