Paperback original, $22 USD
400 pages, first edition
ISBN: 978-0-88214-567-9

SUBJECT: African Studies/Religion

For his new book, Núñez collected the ancient stories told in Santería, a widely practiced religion resulting from the syncretism of Western African Yorùbá religion and Catholicism. These stories speak about the actions and conflicts of the divine ancestors of the Yorùbá slaves of Nigeria and have been retold for centuries by native-born Africans and their Cuban-born descendants during their sacred and secular dances, carnivals, and festivals throughout the Spanish and Portuguese colonies.
Santeria SANTERÍA
A Practical Guide to Afro-Caribbean Magic

With a foreword by MICHAEL VENTURA

Kindle/iBooks edition, $9.99 USD
eISBN: 978-0-88214-053-7

SUBJECT: Religion/Magic

Santería can conservatively claim one hundred million followers in North and Latin America. Núñez’s elegantly clear, authoritative, and practical guide to Santería worship describes the passions of the soul: hatred, jealously, fear, money, and jobs, hopeless betrayal, the misfortunes of ill health; the messages from Santería oracles, its sacrifices, and body healings.
