Book: Voodoo In New Orleans by Robert Tallant

Any book you see on Voodoo today, is either talking about Santeria or Haitian Voodou. Even the "New Orleans Voodoo Tarot" is mostly Voodoo from OUTSIDE of New Orleans. Here you will find the most mature research on Marie Laveau, which is worth the modest price of this book, alone. But you also get history that you will not find anywhere else. Tales of an entire lineage of conjure men and root doctors, the real heart of Louisiana Hoodoo. This book introduces you to men like Doctor Koku, Rooster, Papa Melon, Don Pedro and many others. If you want to see both sides of the New Orleans Voodoo coin, this is the only book that pulls back all the curtains of it's history.

Mr. Tallant was a life long resident of Louisiana. The Voodoo In New Orleans is a history of American Voodoo from the slave days of Marie Lavaue up until the 1940's...and before Voodoo became commercialized and watered down with New Age beliefs for tourists. Far from being "old and silly", the book gives an accuarte picture of Voodoo and the people who pratice it. Some people will be disapointed to find out "flying devil oil" is really just red pepper and olive oil, but the author didn't write a "spellbook" to promote superstition. The book is a very accurate and detailed look at Voodoo.

Regardless of what anyone feels about this book , it is a time stamp in Hoodoo history. The man needs credit for attending Hoodoo meetings and facing up to the Queen's of the time for interview requests. It answers some questions and opens big cans of worms with others, some parts are of course folk tales but it leaves many doors open to speculation on a few serious points about Hoodoo & The Original Voodoo Queens of New Orleans.
