Barry Leonard (ed). Vodou has long been among the most misunderstood & vastly intriguing religions. Vodou has spread its roots from West Africa to the Caribbean, the U.S., Brazil, & Cuba. Drawing from other religions such as Catholicism as it traveled to the New World during the slave trade, Vodou has influenced classic literature such as Huckleberry Finn & African-American folk art, dance, & music -- from tango, samba, & rumba to jazz, blues, & soul. Exquisitely illustrated with art from Haiti, Brazil, & Cuba, The Vodou Box gives a history of Vodou & its influences around the world. It includes examples of charms, rituals, altars, & prayers, as well as a colorful “spirit bottle” -- traditionally used for communicating with the spirits & keeping evil & negativity at bay.
