"Read about the history of Voodoo dolls, their use in ritual throughout time and across cultures, and a delineation of the many types of Voodoo dolls found in New Orleans, including their origins and purpose. The second half of the book focuses on how to make Voodoo dolls and how to use Voodoo dolls in ritual. Chock full of photos you will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else."
"Find the history, ritual, and powers of the ancient art of Voodoo and hoodoo, offering complete details on the closely kept secrets of the most exotic and powerful form of magic. Straight from the New Orleans Voodoo tradition."
"Who doesn't love this book? The candid style of writing by the author accompanied by quirky illustrations makes for a captivating read. And the fact that it is true to southern hoodoo makes it all the better."
"The author makes it clear that he is not a practitioner and only reports what was told to him in interviews by old-time practitioners. For being written by a non practitioner, this is a pretty good book since he reports what is told to him and stays away from his own interpretation, leaving it as close to authentic as possible."
"As an anthropologist, I can appreciate the academic nature of this book. This is a classic in the study of Voodoo, and is one book any serious student of the art of Voodoo should have in their library."
