Book News Annotation:

Associated with an exhibition of the same name at the UCLA Fowler Museum, this book examines the Latino botanica, stores that sell charms, herbs, potions and ritual items, and cater to all kinds of physical, spiritual and religious needs. Polk (world arts & culture, UCLA) has assembled a collection of essays and images, focusing on the altars, shrines, and other religious imagery. Color photographs display the typical botanica's shelves of candles, soaps, oils, and statuary, views of the exterior store fronts, and most of all the many varied altars and shrines. Essays touch on healing and community resource, personal stories, and Santeria and other Afro-Caribbean religions. Distributed by the U. of Washington Press.
