TELL MY HORSE by Zora Neale Hurston

TELL MY HORSE

Voodoo And Life In Haiti And Jamaica (p.s.)

KIRKUS REVIEW

Well told inside facts of the secret societies of Jamaica and Haiti, including Voodoo, by one who has witnessed the many ceremonies and made friends with the members and chiefs of the groups. A study of the origins and meanings of the rites, together with a sympathetic angle on the followers. In some ways it debunks the common idea while it explains the local conception and practices. Entering wholly into the lives of the people, the author had many unique experiences and gives color to her investigations, with personalities, and stories that ring true. Contribution to existing research, but not without popular appeal.
