Best Audience: Anyone wanting to make beginning level Hoodoo practices a part of their family and lifestyle
I wanted to learn more about the history and general practice of Hoodoo. I come from the northern USA and live on the West Coast. Hoodoo practice is mainly a Southeastern practice in my country. I expect if I were to travel, I could find a teacher, but in all honesty I was looking for a better understanding but not necessarily to become a practitioner of Hoodoo. Bird more than delivered.
I was delighted with the gentle and strong way Bird conveys the basic ideas of Hoodoo. Many of the magical practices I’ve learned from teachers and experience are informed by those ideas. That came as a surprise to me. Bird offers many recipes and practices that make perfect sense for keeping a truly magical household.
Sticks, Stones, Roots & Bones: Hoodoo, Mojo & Conjuring with Herbs by Stephanie Rose Bird is arranged by general intent with information on the Magical or Hoodoo approach that informs the spellwork and practices of that chapter. If you’re looking for a step-by-step for learning Hoodoo on your own, Bird’s book will get you started, although you’ll likely want to find an experienced teacher to delve deeper into your practice safely. If what you’re after is to create a household and lifestyle informed by the practices of the the American South, Sticks, Stones, Roots & Bones will no doubt offer you exactly that.
Bottom Line: Sticks, Stones, Roots & Bones: Hoodoo, Mojo & Conjuring with Herbs by Stephanie Rose Bird has earned a permanent place on my bookshelf.
