Southern Cunning: Folkloric Witchcraft in the American South

by Aaron Oberon Author

With an emphasis on Southern folklore, this little volume explores the significance that these old stories have for modern American witchcraft. Drawing on animism and bioregionalism, author Aaron Oberon shows the reader how to bring rituals from Southern folk tales into contemporary magical practice and how to derive magical power from the earth. Addressing practical and theoretical considerations, Southern Cunning is a potent tool in the hands of any witch, and belongs on the bookcase of any magical practitioners with a connection to the American South.
