Traditional Southern root magic and conjure from someone who learned the old ways growing up in rural Appalachia.

Folk magic conjurer and root worker Orion Foxwood invites you to take a walk through his native Appalachia, through moonlit orchards and rural farms, to the dark of the crossroads. From the oral tradition of his ancestors to the voices of the spirits themselves, Foxwood brings readers the secrets of Southern magic: -

Working by the signs (the ability to synchronize work such as farming, fertility, and orcharding)
-Faith healing
-Settling the light (candle magic)
-Doctoring the root (the ability to use herbs, roots, stones, or animal parts for magic or for clearing, cleansing, and blessing a person)
-Praying or dreaming true (blessings of spirit/God to a person, place, or thing as well as prophetic or predictive dreaming)
-Blessing or cursing

Mountain Conjure and Southern Root Work shows how to create magic in today's world with the old ways and traditions of Appalachia

"We walk a steep and rock-strewn path here in Appalachia--a place haunted by undying and toxic stereotypes, as well as a history of relentless extractions and intractable poverty. Out of this rough stew, we create poetry, music, and magic. Orion's book explores one of our many paths to the Mystery and invites the reader to join that exploration." -- H. Byron Ballard, folklorist and author of Staubs and Ditchwater: A Friendly and Useful Introduction to Hillfolks' Hoodoo --H. Byron Ballard
