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.
