Voodoo and life in Jamaica and Haiti as viewed through the eyes and field work of Zora Neale Hurston (1901?–1960), novelist, short-storywriter, anthropologist. Hurston was awarded a continuation of her Guggenheim Fellowship to go down to the Caribbean and record her observations of the culture, folklore, and social practices of these two Island countries.
