Quick Overview

*Rare - Originally Published in German in 1932

Loederer's eyewitness account of his adventures in Haiti has long been out of print - but are here for you now. The author's own art-deco-style woodcuts add to the exotic appeal of this volume, which chronicles the very rare and vanishing African traditions of the island's people.

From his steamer voyage from Jazz Age New York to Cap Haitien to his punishing trek through the island's interior jungle to his rapt, yet fearful, attendance at an authentic voodoo ceremony, Richard A. Loederer captures the sights, sounds, and sensations of this mysterious Caribbean republic...

Richard Loederer
Desmond Vesey
From the text: "The drums took on a different rhythm, rattling out a sharp staccato message, accompanied by the heavy pounding of the bass. Faster and faster flew the feet of the dancers as they whirled round the fire. Their smooth muscles writhed and cramped as under the blows of an invisible whip."
