As a first-hand account of the weird mysteries and horrors of voodoo, Tell My Horse is an invaluable resource and fascinating guide. Based on Zora Neale Hurston's personal experiences in Haiti and Jamaica, where she participated as an initiate rather than just an observer of voodoo practices during her visits in the 1930s, this travelogue into a dark world paints a vividly authentic picture of ceremonies and customs and superstitions of great cultural interest.

Zora was in Jamaica and Haiti in 1937. Her research is irrefutable. She describes the life and culture of the Africans in Jamaica. The Jamaican African's culture differs from the American Africans. The women are looked upon differently in both cultures. The differences are interesting. Haiti is interesting and intriguing. Voodoo and the other customs are compelling. Whatever your view of voodoo is, Zora will fill any voids. I learned a lot about the diaspora.
