In 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.… (mere)

It's presented as a "how to" book, but I would NOT recommend a lot of things the author presents (e.g. wearing urine-soaked clothing, putting various objects in your mouth, or giving a love interest alcohol in which your toenails have been soaking).

Some of the history, especially regarding indigenous people, is spoken of in the past tense as if they don't still exist and presented in generalizations if not seriously questionable "facts."

That said, the bulk of the book about the author's brand of witchcraft is very detailed and informative, from a curiosity perspective if not a practical one. ( )

The narrator's resonant voice carries the author's words perfectly. As in a good talk with an old friend, I was drawn in and spellbound by the personal stories and revelations of Appalachian folk magic. This book is an illuminating introduction to an American magical tradition and a good read (or listen!) Many of the stories seemed to ring a bell of memory with me and I realized it was because I read the fiction of Manly Wade Wellman long ago when I was in high school. Check out his Silver John books if you want to hear more stories based on Appalachian folk tales. ( )
