Book Synopsis

An invaluable relic of early-19th-century Americana, this collection of spells, incantations, and remedies is an example of that fascinating blend of Christian prayer and folk magic known as "hoodoo," which is still practiced in some areas of Pennsylvania Dutch country. In this classic work, first published in the German language in 1820 and translated into English in 1828, folk enchanter JOHN GEORGE HOHMAN-about whom little is known except that he was a German immigrant to America-shares his secret magic for: . curing hysterics . protecting oneself against slander . attaching a dog to a person . making a wand for searching for iron or water . preventing malicious persons from doing injury . curing the poll-evil in horses . mending broken glass . making cattle return home . destroying rats and mice . making a candle wick that is never consumed . charming guns and other arms . and much more.
