Description

A brilliant little book filled with treatments for every ailment you could possibly think of, including how to disarm a thief, and how to make a dog loyal to you. Written by a Pennsylvania Dutch healer in the 1820s, this book is a rambling collection of rural home remedies and folk invocations. Pow-wow is a unique creole of Christian theology and a shamanistic belief system which is still practiced in some rural areas of Pennsylvania.

This book has 63 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1820.
