The story of New Orleans's legendary voodoo queen and other tales of strange doings. "This book is written chiefly for the reader's entertainment and amusement; it is historically correct so far as possible, but the stories of the miraculous achievements attributed to the persons involved in Voodooism are from tales handed down, and while there is much truth in them there are also some fabrications and additions which seemed necessary in order to create the atmosphere of the times; that is, to show the manner of life in the community when the greater number of inhabitants considered Voodoism and animism with much seriousness." 96 pages, biblio, illustrated with B&W drawings. Raymond J. Martinez was a long-time writer on New Orleans subjects. A resident of New Orleans, Martinez was also publisher of Hope Publishing Company. . 0. TRADE PAPERBACK.
