The Magical Buffet, the ecclectic online ‘zine where “spirituality, politics and pop culture collide” has reviewed author Cherry Gilchrist’s newest release Russian Magic:Living Folk Traditions of an Enchanted Landscape (Quest Books; Oct.)!


Russian Magic is everything a book of its type should be, potential authors of folkloric books take note. The book is engaging and covers a surprisingly large swath of Russian traditions, religious practices, folklore traditions, and more. It is well researched but also filled with first hand accounts from the author brushing up against these practices…I highly suggest picking up this entertaining and enlightening book.
