Overview

Speak in the Charming Tradition of Ozark Rhymes, Poems & Verses

Little Ann was born in Nelson's Holler during a thunderstorm on the same day her grandmother died. She was also born with the gift. Follow Ann's story as she grows up learning the folkways, embraces her natural cunning, and eventually becomes her town's charmer, earning the nickname "Granny Thornapple."

Brandon Weston begins each chapter with a compelling snippet from the life of this fictional practitioner who is based on the many healers he has interviewed. In addition to these vignettes, Weston shares authentic teachings and workings from the Ozark charming tradition that have been passed down orally for generations.

He introduces dozens of charms for practical purposes, such as preventing thievery, building a fire, and alleviating a toothache. Become part of this mountain magic that utilizes familiar poems and verses, including some featured in nursery rhymes and fairy tales. These intuitive folkways can help you seize your inborn power and enhance your own charming abilities.
