Good read.

This book was good, but not was interesting as I had hoped it would be. If I had it to do over again I would just check it out from the library and not buy it.

This book did not start off well for me. I saw there was a section on "Voodoo and Witchcraft in Oklahoma", so I immediately turned to that section. What I discovered was that the author had not done his homework. There was no voodoo in Oklahoma. There was a lot of hoodoo/rootwork/conjure going on. And most people would be suprised about just how much hoodoo was happening in Oklahoma! People forget that Oklahoma is also a Southern state! So the author does not know the difference between hoodoo and voodoo. The author also only gave small crumbs of information instead of fleshing out the material. For example, he mentions that Charles Becker, a former Oklahoma City Chief of Police had stated back in the 1930s that he had recovered multiple "ouangas" and gris-gris bags from people. This fell under the author's title, "Of Loas and Lawmen". The information had nothing to do with the loas and the author for some reason didn't include a picture of Becker, a reprint of any existing newspaper article or an official quote. It's like he just briefly mentions it and moves on. Much of the material presented is in that fashion. It's a shame because there are some hints at really good stories here. For example, in 1947 a man burst into the Oklahoma State Attorney's office claiming that he was being hexed by his wife and sons. However, the author doesn't even include their names and like most of the stories presented, the tale remains "fleshless" or "bare-boned".

So I have three basic issues with this book. The first being the author didn't do his homework with regard to the whole "voodoo" nonsense. The second being that the author did not flesh out the stories. The final criticism I have is that the author pursued a skeptical or debunking approach to several legends. As far as I can tell that was not the purpose of the book but simply something the author chose to do. I think it was a poor decision and a good editor may have been able to tell him that it didn't quite fit. It is possible to write on local folklore and legends while not presenting yourself as a believer or a debunker. I think the author should strive for this in any future writings. I also think the author should try to use more descriptive or even "poetic" or "flowery" language to attempt to set the tone. The tone of this book was very straight-forward and dry. That doesn't make good storytelling. When you recount folklore you need to write it as if you were telling a story to a group of people and you need to set the tone and invoke that feeling of mystery, awe, and even fright. All of that good stuff was missing.

"From mysterious lights in the sky to whispered voices in a vacant home, Oklahoma is filled with unexplained phenomena and

strange tales..."

"UFOs, bigfoot, ghosts, buried treasure, mysterious places...you'l find all of these and more within this strange state."

Strange State presents a thoroughly researched and well-written account of paranormal phenomena in occuring in Oklahoma. Hudson's clear and concise style conveys the legends and mysteries of Oklahoma in an engaging manner, with a judicious dash of humor thrown in for spice. This book will provide hours of enlightenment and entertainment to anyone looking to find out more about the darker underbelly of the Sooner State.

So often these books are so vague and slight on the research. It is good to see one that obviously took the time to do some indepth research and wasn't content to merely pass on the tale without question.

Hudson respects the topics of the search - keeps a true investigators open mind - but does apply logic to each topic.

A must have and a breath of fresh air to books of this nature.
