    Vudu Cartography: The Autobiography of Michael Houdeaux by Michael Bertiaux, published in 2010. “Vudu Cartography explores the mysteries of Les Vudu through chants, oracles, seances and a symbolic system of images-all connected by a descriptive narrative which leads us, like a dusty highway, through the shimmering landscape.
