Natalie Maines



At age 18, Damien Echols was sentenced to death for a crime he didn't commit. "I spent my years in prison training to be a true magician," he recalls. "I used magick--the practice of reshaping reality through our intention and will--to stave off incredible pain, despair, and isolation. But the most amazing feat of all that practice and study was to manifest my freedom." With High Magick: A Guide to the Spiritual Practices That Saved My Life on Death Row, this bestselling author shares his first teaching book on the powerful spiritual techniques that helped him survive and transcend his ordeal on death row.   "Magick is a journey," writes Damien. 

Natalie Maines is the lead vocalist for the Dixie Chicks, an American singer-songwriter and activist.
