A little-known yet long-established tradition of witch lore exists in Newfoundland culture. Those believed to have the power to influence the fortunes of others are not mythological characters but neighbours, relations, or even friends. Drawing from her own interviews and a wealth of material from the Memorial University Folklore and Language Archive, Barbara Rieti explores the range and depth of Newfoundland witch traditions, looking at why certain people acquired reputations as witches and why others considered themselves bewitched.
