Marie Laveau may be the most influential American practitioner of the magical arts; she is definitely one of the most well-known. She has inspired songs, films, and folklore, and she is the headliner of New Orleans ghost tours. Her cemetery in New Orleans is one of the most popular spiritual pilgrimages in the United States. Votive figures of Laveau, who declared herself the "Pope of Voodoo," are venerated by devotees. She has inspired novels by Francine Prose and Jewell Parker Rhodes, as well as being the subject of reputable historical histories. She has even appeared in Marvel Comics and on the television program American Horror Story: Coven, where Angela Bassett played her. Author Denise Alvarado delves into Marie Laveau's life and activities, as well as the interesting history and mystery surrounding her. This book provides an introduction to New Orleans Voodoo, including its origins, history, and traditions. It includes spells, prayers, rituals, recipes, and directions for building New Orleans-style voodoo altars and making a gris-gris voodoo amulet. A 224-page paperback book measuring 6" x 9".
