I studied religion, spirituality and the occult for 30 years and found this book to be a waste of money. that is why I gave it one star Unless you can read Spanish go to a botanica and read those little pamphlet type books on the saint. also it should not be double spaced it is a 5 to 8 book.
I am writing a doctoral dissertation on Santa Muerte, and I am also a devotee. I have read everything printed on the subject in both English and Spanish. This garbage will not be in my reference list, unless I create a "negative reference list."
There are too many errors (factual, going off-topic, translation, spelling, diction, subject-verb agreement, citation, etc.) to list here. It is a waste of my time, and I am angry for having purchased this crap. I hate to write a negative review, but others should be warned and spared the time and expense that this "book" has caused me.
If you do not speak Spanish, but are interested in an introduction to the phenomenon of Santa Muerte, read R. Andrew Chestnut's Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint published by Oxford University Press. Even if this book is written by a gringo outsider who does not speak Spanish, at least it is an edited, scholarly text with accurate information.
The book features several black and white photographs detailing altars, shrines, devotees, rituals, and sacramentals for Santa Muerte. You will also get to see several depictions of popular Folk Saints like Jesus Malverde, whom the author has also touched on in this book.
In addition to this, the author gives the basic meanings for each of Santa Muerte's colors and other information on the development and evolution of this miracle working Lady.
The drawbacks of this book are mainly that the entire thing is double spaced, so in actuality the number of pages written could have been cut in half. Aside from that, it is a pretty descent little book.
For those who want to read more about Santisima Muerte, and do not speak or read in Spanish, I can recommend Bryant Holman's book. I would also recommend learning to read in Spanish as there are a wide variety of books available on Santa Muerte published in Mexico.
