The classic book on legends, lore, and unvarnished truths surrounding New Orleans' most famous Voodoo mistress—now in a modern, legible format. It also features other tales from surrounding parishes of days long gone by, an illustrated guide to palm-reading, humorous asides, and over 30 fascinating drawings and images.

In addition to facts and folklore about Laveau—including revealing research into some debunked myths and unanswered questions—the book offers entertaining stories of her life and the people around the New Orleans area, such as:

· Lafayette's visit to New Orleans . . . and to Marie Laveau herself?
· How Marie Laveau turned hate into love for some wishful suitors
· How she earned her free house on St. Ann Street, and how her death made city newspapers go wild
· The man with two wives—in two languages—and therefore a roosterhead in his coatpocket
· Why New Orleans doorsteps are so clean
· How an utter idiot won the election for mayor of Burley Landing
· The proper use of gris gris, and the meaning of palm mountains and lines
· How an honest thief fooled an unsuspecting Yankee
· Why zombies are created to be used as farmhands

This book is presented in a quality new edition with all the illustrations from the original properly presented, as well as additional images found only in the Quaint Press edition of this well-known look into the folklore of old New Orleans.
