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.

Well told inside facts of the secret societies of Jamaica and Haiti, including Voodoo, by one who has witnessed the many ceremonies and made friends with the members and chiefs of the groups.

Think White Zombie (the 1932 film, not the band) and I Walked With a Zombie (1942), and all those New Orleans-voodoo style zombies, as well as that lumpen, poky zombie in Scooby-Doo.
