Product description

Review

Davies tells a highly original story, yet one that makes instant sense. This is a vivid, arresting, insightful book, written with sympathy and human understanding. It extends Davies's reputation as an original thinker in the field, when so much work is derivative or merely illustrative of well-established ideas. (Malcolm Gaskill, Fortean Times)

This will be an essential work for researchers into both witchcraft beliefs and folk medicine for some considerable time, and a study which is entirely readable for the non-specialist reader. (Peter Rogerson, Magonia Review of Books)

An informative, useful introduction to a fascinating aspect of American culture that clearly demonstrates that witch beliefs in the US did not end with Salem ... Recommended. (L.B. Gimelli, CHOICE)
