The folk witchcraft of England's West Country is the subject of this practical book, which outlines the region's many traditional charms for protection, cures and curses.


Aimed at today's witch who wishes to work in a way inspired by folk magic, this book has the earthy feel of the Traditional Witchcraft strand of magic which is coming into increasing popularity. A toad blessing and a Moon working are among the hundred-plus items which the author presents, and the book is heavily illustrated with evocative woodcuts.
