Comments about the book
Trample on the dust of the Dead lightly...
This sentiment, held by old-time Hoodoos and  traditional Rootworkers, is a subtle reminder of  the importance of observing certain behaviors  while in a graveyard. Knock before entering.  Be careful where you walk. Don’t step on graves  or sit on tombstones. Always ask before taking  anything—even stones, flowers, sticks and leaves.  Never leave trash, always greet the gatekeeper  and always come prepared with a pocket full of  pennies, silver dimes and a bottle of rum or whiskey. The important thing to remember is  that you never just walk in and take something.  You must always treat the spirits with respect;  both the spirits of the deceased, as well as the  guardians of the cemeteries and the psychopomps. 
Workin’ in da Boneyard is a primer for conjurers  seeking a tangible connection to their past, their ancestors and the Spirit World by working with  graveyards and graveyard dirt. From practical  issues of safety, choosing a cemetery, locating  ancestral graves, reading gravestone signs and  symbols, avoiding haints and hauntings, to  gathering graveyard dirt and making goofer  dust, Workin’ in da Boneyard has the information  needed for working effective graveyard conjure,  as well as words of caution for the ill-prepared.
