Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Would you believe that the father of modern science, Sir Isaac Newton, was a devout practitioner of the mystical practice of spinning gold? Can you figure out how the expression "hair of the dog" could have originated with an ancient treatment for wounds? Are you aware that when you check your daily horoscope that your sign is based on a system developed long ago by the ancient Greeks -- a system developed to explain a magical relationship between human beings and the planets millions of miles away?

Astounding but true, these and other stories are intricately bound up with the rise of civilizations, politics, religion, medicine and culture. Their real story is entangled in a web of myths, illusions, fears and lies. Written with spirited fun by a scholar of superstition, "Spellbound" unties the knots and sorts the facts from the fantasies to present a tale of magic certain to charm, enlighten, amuse and occasionally horrify.

Discover the actual historic events and ancient rituals behind the magic conjured up by the likes of harry potter and the hobbit.

Filled with authentic photographs and eerie anecdotes, "Spellbound" explains:
-- The enduring legend of witches riding on broomsticks
-- The difference between elves and faeries...and witches and warlocks
-- The natural magic of herbal remedies -- and the serious work of medicine men
-- Which numbers are believed to be lucky -- and why
