This is a collection of spells on love, marriage and dreaming - all of them authentic and some extremely ancient - taken from the handwritten manuscripts of a genuine white witch. The author's material is drawn from and inspired by the works of her great grand-mother, a 19th-century Yorkshire "wisewoman" who used her fund of native wisdom to help others. The spells, reproduced here for the first time in their original form, represent a fascinating element of folklore tradition and offer a glimpse of a time long ago when country people lived close to the earth and observed the laws of nature. Some of the spells are complex and require careful preparation, others merely demand careful observation of natural symbols. There are spells to be worked on May Day and St Valentine's Day, spells to reveal a future lover's name - even one to mend a broken heart. They are amusing and playful, but beneath each one lies a wealth of country folklore and tradition whose ancient wisdom can benefit us all.
