A wondrous land of enchantment, Jamaica boasts a climate and terrain as beautiful as anywhere on earth. In addition to possessing a unique beauty, this land can also boast of an unusual people, with a mystical outlook on life. For this is a land of voodoo, of magical chants and mysteries, a place that few tourists can hope to really understand. And one of the mysteries of this realm of magic is unfolded within the pages of this book, The Secret of the Unknown Powers. The author of this book, Buchanan, is a Christian, yet one deeply influenced by the beliefs of his homeland, Jamaica. He has had a hard life, one that has made him particularly open to realizing that there are many things beyond man's understanding. When Buchanan was but a child, his father was wrongly accused of murder. This incident would haunt Buchanan, causing him to go by an assumed name and travel throughout the West Indies and Mexico, hoping no one would discover his identity. During these travels, he began to see visions and have prophetic dreams. Indeed, this true story reads like a novel, but as they say, truth is stranger than fiction. If the fantastic qualities of everyday life, with or without visions, interest you, you will find The Secret of the Unknown Powers enthralling.
