This beautiful, coffee-table book on Mary Pleasant is a biography
and a major work in Pleasant's spiritual inspiration as well. Designed
as a social history, it details Pleasant's life and the model that
Pleasant used to become "Mother of Civil Rights in California," the
story of Marie LaVeau (the great New Orleans Vodou queen), and the
tools for social leveraging that she passed to Pleasant. It demystifies
Vodun (voodoo) in layman's terms and explains how it affected Pleasant
and LaVeau. Don't miss this major work.
