Seriously one of the biggest pieces of crap I’ve had the misfortune to read. The eschatologist in me enjoys reading some religious texts, but this Pow-wows junk makes even less sense than normal religion. Referencing “Christian Gypsy Kings of Egypt” and providing spells and charms for stopping bleeding (none of which include things like applying pressure or anything remotely logical) and preventing “mortification” (gangrene) and “calumnification” (slander) … well, I realize this was written in a different, harsher era, but who would believe this?
Supposedly these morons still roam the “wilds” of Pennsylvania, preying on the believing and the short-of-common-sense crowd. I’m thinking anyone who gets taken by them probably deserves it, since if you want to believe such a assinine mishmash of Catholic, Protestant, and Roma “beliefs”, it’s on your head what happens to you.
