Enlightening book in ways, it is extremely simplified, but gives you the general idea.. Lots of pictures ( )

Gordon's book provides a nice, artfully illustrated guide to the world of Haitian vodou. A nice introduction for anyone who would like to casually learn more about this religion. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764152491, Hardcover)

Vodou is magic. But it's also much more! It's a religion of charms and rituals intended to empower life and bring good fortune to those who practice it. Vodou is a deeply spiritual and visually dazzling religion encompassing rituals, songs, and dances evoking spirits that believers recognize as part of nature. This engrossing account traces its origins in Africa to its full development in the West Indies island of Haiti. It also presents ways readers can use Vodou to enrich their own lives in terms of love, luck, and prosperity. The Book of Vodou covers all-important aspects of its intriguing subject, and brings many Vodou spirits fully alive with vivid, often humorous descriptions. Readers learn how to build their own magic altar and invoke Vodou spirits, how to make charms and amulets, and how to work spells and read signs of divination. More than 120 full-color illustrations.
