New World Witchery Cory Thomas Hutcheson

I was excited when I first found out that Cory was writing this book, as I knew it would be a passion project for him that he would put his heart into. He exceeded my expectations. It’s clear that Cory has a deep love for this subject and poured a great deal of himself into creating this book. As such, New World Witchery is a masterful compendium of North America’s folklore and folk magic traditions, including an extensive collection of spells, charms, and folk practices from all over the continent. The result is a unique opportunity for American readers to discover and learn about the magical traditions of their regions and that of others.

Bridging a scholarly historical approach with a “dirt under your nails” hands-on approach as a magical practitioner, Cory writes with a clear and accessible writing style that is fun to read. Throughout the book, he gives a rare glimpse into the magical workings of American culture through a wide lens, instead of focusing purely on one practice or one region like most. So whether you’re a beginner looking to learn about new magical practices or a seasoned practitioner wanting to expand your knowledge of the origins and history of the magical traditions of North America, New World Witchery: A Trove of North American Folk Magic is for you.
