Jake (Dr. Henny) follows family practice as a Yarb Doctor and Conjure man in the Appalachian Folk Magic tradition. He follows the legacy of his mother (a seventh daughter), that left behind by his grandfather, a baptist preacher who was a blood stopper, wort doctor, and thrush doctor; his grandmother, who was a knowledgeable woman in these works before Alzheimer’s set in; his great, great grandfather who witched for water in Washington County and his great grandmother who taught and worked from her roost at the foot of Devil’s Nest Mountain. Jake is the author of Backwoods Witchcraft: Conjure & Folk Magic from Appalachia, available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Indiebound. When he’s not writing, blogging, reading the bones or trying for clients: he is either traveling, gardening, sewing, book binding, reading, or sculpting.

“When I travel to the worlds most dangerous places, I see the best, and worst in people, and I see it with my own eyes. There is a purity in that. Seeing life for yourself unfiltered by other peoples judgements. And at journeys end I am never really the same person I was at the beginning, but maybe that is the biggest discovery of all” ~RYP

“What you learn from doing this type of travel, from this type of goal. Is that first of all the Earth is round, everyone is your neighbor. We always think there is an imaginary line between countries. There isn’t. Maybe people speak a different language or they have a different cultural background but they all have the same goals and needs and desires and wants. We tend to insulate ourselves in the western world, because we have everything” ~ RYP
“We fool ourselves sometimes we think we don’t need to pay attention to world events, but we do. And More importantly we need to take the time we have to go to these places and listen to these people and share food with them and meet their kids. To understand what life is like for them, so when we come back to our world we make decisions with them in mind” ~ RYP

I bought the freighter canoe I paddled 1000 miles in when I was ten years old. I cut in three pieces and burned two of them so it could not torture any more children. The remaining piece holds some of my many bizarre mementoes. #Canada#wilderness#North Saskatchewan #StJohnscathedralboyschool#TheAdventurist
