About this book
Subtitled, "Cunning-Folk In English History". A study of the important, and often ignored, role that cunning-folk played in everyday life.
Cunning-folk were local practitioners of magic, providing small-scale but valued service to the community. They were far more representative of magical practice than the arcane delvings of astrologers and necromancers. Mostly unsensational in their approach, cunning-folk helped people with everyday problems.
