Where the book falls down is the pictures- terribly reprinted, you can barely see anything, and the side rambling into Haitian local politics (in the present day then) that really means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Perhaps if there'd been a footnote by a scholar to say how that local bit of political history impacted on Haiti today, I'd have been happy, but as it is, it took me out of the story. Overall, a good read if you read it in the day. It's spooky reading it at night!
Most of the book is based on Hurston's travels and direct experiences collecting folklore in Haiti. A wonderful picture of early 20th century Haiti and its colourful religion of vodou (voodoo), this book is highly reccommended to all practitioners of Haitian vodou or those interested in Haitian or Caribbean culture.
