A personal narrative filled with homespun wisdom, this memoir recounts the life and times of one of the founders behind the Feri tradition of modern Neopagan witchcraft. Revealing the author's journey through an intriguing collection of challenging circumstances and memorable experiences, this account ranges from an impoverished childhood in rural Alabama during the Great Depression to her marriage to the blind poet, shaman, and cofounder of the Feri tradition, Victor H. Anderson. Warm, intimate, and bittersweet, this glimpse into the world of a true American 'kitchen witch' includes recipes, personal spells, and poetry, demonstrating an extensive knowledge of a craft held in high regard by healers and folk magicians of the rural South.
