Summary
When African slaves were brought to the American South to work the plantations, they brought with them their culture, traditions, and religion-including what came to be called voodoo. This unique blend of Christianity, herbalism, and folk magic is still practiced in South Carolina's Lowcountry. Though a beginner's guide, Lowcountry Voodoo offers a surprising wealth of information about this fascinating part of Lowcountry life. Learn about: - the Gullah and their ways - how to bring good luck and avoid bad luck - spells and curses and how to avoid them - how to cook up traditional good-luck meals for New Year's Day - a real voodoo village you can visit - sweetgrass baskets - events and tours to acquaint you with Lowcountry culture. In a selection of Lowcountry tales that feature voodoo, meet: - a boo hag bride who sheds her skin at night - Dr. Buzzard, the most famous root doctor - a giant ghost dog - a young man whose love potion worked too well - George Powell, who outwitted a haint - Crook-Neck Dick, who (mostly) outwitted a hangman - Doctor Trott, who captured a mermaid
