    This is a book of magical remedies actually used in 19thearly 20th century America It's a hybrid of Christian beliefs and shamanism akin to hoodoo It's actually a translation from a German work first used by Pennsylvania Dutch hexmeistersIt has some interest for its historical value and might also serve as a writer's or gamer's resource if you want to color your setting with authentic magical practices of the period

    This is an extremely interesting read and I have looked forward to it for a long time but I think I set my expectations too high I blame Brian Keene with his Levi Stoltzfus books for this one JK love his works The items within are not all attributed to Holman and were other items thrown into the book to either pad out its a very short span of pages or to just add in data from another set of folks that were along the same bent It's not that I expect to ever have to use these remedies or such but finding some of these ingredients like the brain of a thief to protect against lost or stolen property or creating these charms with the items reuested to save a woman from fits are just a little off

    This is such a wonderful little book of spells and recipes from the past It's a great little glimpse into what people in the past were thinking and their lives as well as a good reference for today to play with

    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

    The edition by Daniel Harms is extremely well researched and clearly writtenHowever the Long Lost Friend itself is pretty useless It's just a recipe book with no explanation of the underlying world view or philosophy from which the recipes come It's just a book of tricks

    Excellent collection of old time remedies from Mr Hohman who was a Pennsylvania Dutch healer It’s interesting to see what remedies include herbsplants which ones are based on Christian prayers other based on older sigils and Magic suares et ceteraOf this book but not in many others is that there is a table of contents at the back—the drawback of this book is that items feel like they are in random order as if they were in the order Mr Hohman collected them At least the table of contents lets you find items again once you’re finished reading but you need to know it’s thereThere are also a few old recipes for dyeing things based on plant matterand recipes for horsesA short book but interesting Don’t know how useful it actually is but saying a prayer is pretty immediateThis is another one that I’m trying to decide about sell or keep?

    LOVE THESE OLD POW WOWSGreat book full of great old time pow wows and prayers and with faith are guaranteed to workThese pow wows are also for animals as well as humans must believe the Christian faith for them to work since all prayers are about the christThe author has also placed sworn testimonial s that his pow wows have worked on many people and who ever carries this book with them are protected from any type of evil and misfortune
