Katrina Rasbolds Crossroads of Conjure is an interesting, informative, and well-written introduction to the history and practices of Appalachian and Ozark Granny Magic, Hoodoo, Brujería, and Curanderismo. The writing is clear and easy to read while the information is well-detailed and relevant.

This book is such a fascinating read! I was expecting an academic book with formal and stiff writing but Rasbold really pleasantly surprised me. Her writing style is simple, easy to read, and very

This was an extremely informative, well-written book covering the history and practice of Appalachian and Ozark Granny Magic, Hoodoo, Brujería, and Curanderismo. I had very little knowledge about Hoodoo, Brujería, and Curanderismo going into this book, but having grown up in the northern Appalachians, I recognized some of the traces of Granny Magic in the traditions passed down from my grandparents. The author's personal experiences brought the traditions and current practice to life and I ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I bought it mainly for the section on hoodoo but was pleasantly surprised with the other sections and learned a lot about each tradition. As a bonus there was even a small section on Santa Muerte which I wasnt expecting and I was very excited to find, since I have an altar to her. I thought the book was well researched and the information was presented in a balanced way, even better, there is a works cited (and in text citations) which not only made me trust what the ...more

OMG!!!! I loved this book. So much information, Once you get started, it is very hard to put this book down. Clear, concise information, something for everyone. Nice history, etc is found in this book. Opened my eyes to so much. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and the publisher for the ARC of this book. Although I received the book in this manner, it did not affect my opinion of this book nor my review.

Absolutely wonderful!

I was expecting a textbook like boring explanation, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Broke down into the parts, Hoodoo, Granny Magic, and Brujeria/Curanderismo, each section explains the history of, the meaning behind, and today's practices. It's put in simple language and explanations.

If youre considering becoming involved in conjure or wish to learn more about its culture, this is a great book to read. Crossroads of Conjure compares and discusses current conjure practices in the American South -- namely Hoodoo, Appalachian Granny Magic, and Brujeria and Curandismo.
Each section gives an overview of the history and development of a magical path, covering their basic beliefs, distinguishing characteristics and differences. It goes into the politics and prejudices amongst today

Loved this book of folk medicine and religion. Learning about the different traditions including VooDoo of the deep south and especially Louisiana, Wise women or Granny women from the Ozarks, Brujeria and the Curanderismo. They healed and helped with so many of the needs of the people.These types of practices have been brought over by different immigrants and the native americans as well. All these beliefs combine and change to different types of magic. Few clear distinctions are to be found ...more

I really feel that the author would have been better off writing 2 or 3 different books instead of one, but for one she encompasses what she has been taught in a power point method to give people an idea of different practices.
