Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica
"Strikingly dramatic, yet simple and unrestrained . . . an unusual and intensely interesting book richly packed with strange information."
--New York Times Book Review
Based on Zora Neale Hurston's personal experiences in Haiti and Jamaica, where she participated as an initiate rather than just an observer of voodoo practices during her visits in the 1930s, this travelogue into a dark world paints a vividly authentic picture of the ceremonies, customs, and superstitions of voodoo.
