I'd also recommend checking out the book "Backwoods Witchcraft: Conjure & Folk Magic from Appalachia" by Jake Richards for stories, folklore, and traditions from the people that moved into those ancient hills and valleys

@Crazypedia check out Hellier or even better the Penny Royal podcasts for just a few anecdotes about this fact :k_whoa:

@Crazypedia folklore and spooky stuff from Appalachia is off the wall. Huge fan of lumberjack lore

@Crazypedia Lots of Old Gods ofAppalachia vibes, I'm here for it.

@lienrag @logomancer and for bones...
