This is one of my all time favorite books and the one I recommend to everyone who wants to learn about New Orleans Voodoo. If you want to know when it is okay to do a work against someone, or how to make a little soul doll, it's in this book. If you want to meet the orishas and learn to work the rainbow, it's in this book. Chief Luisah Teish provides an intimate look at her relationship with the mysteries and gives the reader some practical instruction on how to serve the Spirits without initiation. This book is a must have for anyone interested in learning from someone who lives and breathes what she writes. Its all real, so get your copy and read it now. ( )

I was lucky to find a used copy of Luisah Teish's book at my local Psychic Eye in high school and it has been a favorite ever since. Teish is a seasoned and talented storyteller and her book is a mix of personal recollection, myths, spells, rituals and magickal theory that speak to the diverse world of New Orleans and Voudou. Magick is appropriately understood as messy, mysterious, a bit dangerous and ultimately an important part of our human lineage.

Reading this book is like having tea or coffee with a charming and wise grandmother and teacher of magic, specifically Hoodoo and some of the Yoruban traditions. While a bit dated, the information is still very useful, and I recommend this resource to any Dianic groups or women centered Earth Religion traditions. Men can find some educational material about what it was like to grow up female and Black during the 50's and 60's from someone who was actually there.

The ritual magic is a bit watered down from its Santeria and Hoodoo origins but remains true to the spirit of the traditions. Three stars for said watering down of the above, and for having no dark path material at all from a tradition that is just as dark as it is bright. ( )
