This large and detailed study covers the evolution of cunning folk practices over the 350-year span. The trade, the practices and their sources are all explored in depth, illustrating their practical and contemporary nature. The analogous practices of African-American conjure and root work are also discussed to offer insights into oral fragments of practices lost to history. A work which is long overdue, this book reveals a vibrant and unbroken living witchcraft practice which has been largely impenetrable up to now.
