Most of this collection of material was gathered over the years while I was living in the Uwharrie Mountains, the Asheville area in North Carolina and by visiting Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and West Virginia border mountain towns and retreats.
Part folklore, part “how to”, part magical and definitely spiritual, it was an interesting book to write and I still enjoy reading over it. I have not found any book yet where this variety of material is been brought together.
