Reviews

Davis, senior editor of Cooking Light magazine, documents a five-year journey into the world of voudou in the American South, specifically New Orleans, Miami, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. Voudou is a largely misunderstood religion adapted from West African worship during the diaspora of slavery; this book is a chronicle of personal experience, observation, and reflection. Davis provides a view of a world hidden and protected from outsiders. The result is not a comprehensive study but a narrower appreciation of the way voudou is practiced in parts of the Southern United States, including an important discussion of sacrifice. Engagingly written, the book includes a very helpful glossary and bibliography as well as two appendixes on voudou in the media and the history of the religion. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.‘Gail Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology Lib., Cortland
