10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Victor Cypert on June 23, 2000
Format: Paperback
Beautiful images and masterful writing combine to give the reader a glimpse of the economically devastated but spiritually rich lives of the people in Haiti.
Pictures of Manbos, Oungans, and Bokos make the book come alive and speak to us of the beauty and wonder of the misunderstood religion of Vodou.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Shloma ben Avram HaKohain on April 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
Phyllis Galembo's photographic skills are legend among those whose interest extends to African and Afro-Caribbean religions. In this area she never fails to impress and satisfy. I am happy to have this book.

In addition to her brilliant photographs, Galembo offers detailed, profound and soulful explanations of Vodou belief. She is one of only a very few authors to have done so. This book will serve to inform and enlighten both the curious and the expert. Bravo!

This book has great pictures to go along with the text. I find it useful to help me learn about the intriguing religion. Well done.

Format: Paperback
We happened upon this gem at our local library and owe a large fine now because we're so reluctant to part with it (hence this visit to Amazon to buy one of our own). Madame Galembo's masterful, candid photos from the streets, homes and temples of Haiti are so compelling, even my children have enjoyed the people and colors of vodou. The text is the most coherent and enjoyable primer of Haitian vodou I have ever read. It relates the West African roots of vodou to its Caribbean offspring and draws parallels to the orishas of Santeria. Bravo, Madame Galembo!
