Review

If true mystery and fascinating cultures move you, you'll be thunderstruck by this book. Just look at a map. If you consider the mid-South roughly those regions along the Mississippi River delta, you've found it. Vast numbers of Africans were brought to this region in chains from their native lands, moved cross country from the Atlantic coast, and inland from Jamaica, Haiti, and the Caribbean. They brought with them their religious and faith healing practices. Tony Kail, cultural anthropologist and ethnographer, writer and lecturer, brings his nearly three decades of study of ancient faith healing (hoodoo) and herbal beliefs to bear in this remarkable work.Decatur Daily --This text refers to the paperback edition.
