Pow-Wows, Or Long Lost Friend - AbeBooks - John George Hohman:
Brand new Book. Seller Inventory AAV Never used! Despite the name, this is a book of Pennsylvania German folk-magic and folklore. It includes a wide range of pieces of advice regarding folk-medicine, agriculture, and folk-magic. Some charms seem to be pervasive and enduring, such as the use of the SATOR square to cure cattle of witchcraft-related ailments.
The work is remarkably wide-ranging in its pages, and unlike simple collections of superstitions, this is a how-to book which provides a great deal more information about how these practices would generally be used.
