Really great stuff. And 4+ books from the appendix are going on my reading list now. Some of the stories and charms are very interesting and worth noting.

With so many books about Cornish witchcraft, it was refreshing to read a book detailing some of the traditions and tales of Devon. Well written as always by Gemma Gary.

A gorgeous little book on Devonshire folk magic and witchcraft, with wonderful sections on Devon witches, and a little black book at the back to boot- there is even a section on Toad Magic :).

An excellent collection of historical tales of Black Dogs, Wild Hunts, Witchcraft, magical traditions and folkways of South West England… aka Devonshire. Some of the lore was familiar and some was not so learned a few things. Enjoyable, factual and leading to other books of like topics
