This book was simply lovely, and the pictures were very evocative of the subject matter and beautiful to behold.
For those that may be looking at this book for information on actually working with Black Hawk, you will likely be disappointed as this is more a historical look at the figure of Black Hawk and about the churches and people that honor him mostly in the New Orleans area. All the information is very important for understanding the context in which these practices developed, and so is still very valuable for all spiritual workers who are curious about incorporating the veneration of Black Hawk into their path. But for actual how-to info, we will have to wait for Mama Starr from Old Style Conjure to release her book later in 2010. :)
However, I highly recommend this book for those wishing to learn more about the Spiritual Churches of New Orleans, and some of the very unique and fascinating traditions that took root in their houses of worship.
