Cora Anderson Kitchen Witch from Harpy Books

“An Inspiring Recollection from a Beloved Craft Elder

A personal narrative filled with homespun wisdom, this memoir recounts the life and times of one of the foremost elders of the Fairy (Feri) Faith of the Old Religion. Her journey proceeds from an impoverished childhood in rural Alabama before the Great Depression, to her marriage to the blind poet and shaman Victor H. Anderson and their life together as co-teachers of the Feri Tradition. This warm, intimate, and bittersweet autobiography provides a glimpse into the world of a true American kitchen Witch, and includes her recipes, personal spells, and poetry.” — back cover
