Paperback. 165 pages.
A personal narrative filled with homespun wisdom, this memoir recounts the life and times of one of the foremost elders of the Fairy (Feri) Faith of the Old Religion. Her journey proceeds from an impoverished childhood in rural Alabama before the Great Depression to her marriage to the blind poet, shaman, and co-teacher of the Feri-Tradition, Vitor H. Anderson, and their life together. This warm, intimate, and bittersweet life story provides a glimpse into the world of a true American kitchen Witch, and includes her recipies, personal spells, and poetry.
