cat yronwode is a personal friend of mine but she gets 5+ stars and a great interview because she wrote a fine source book, the first of its kind. Hoodoo, Conjure, and traditional Southern American and African American folk magic has existed for several hundred years, but miss cat's Hoodoo, Herb, and Root Magic is the first volume available to the general public that lists thousands of plants commonly worked with in this tradition. I talk to clients everyday who are ready and willing to do some work for themselves and this book is the place to start. Not only does it provide a list of plants, there are hundreds of recipes for everything Conjure--how to make your own mojo hand, little tricks to lay around your house and on your person, recipes for washes and baths and so much more. For the pro and amateur alike, HHRM is the go-to source book for Hoodoo spell work as well as a testament to the tradition and a means of preservation.
