Based on acclaimed author Zora Neale Hurston's personal experiences in Haiti and Jamaica where she participated as an initiate rather than just an observer during her visits in the 1930s Tell My Horse is a fascinating firsthand account of the mysteries of Voodoo. An invaluable resource and remarkable guide to Voodoo practices, rituals, and beliefs, it is a travelogue into a dark, mystical world that offers a vividly authentic picture of ceremonies, customs, and superstitions.
