Item description for Jamaican Duppy Stories by David Brailsford & John Stilgoe...

This delightful book is written by the Englishman, married to a Jamaican woman who exposed him to the stories of duppies and supernatural happenings in her hometown, Porus, Manchester and different parts of Jamaica. The range of stories encompasses tales from Porus and Redberry, and Old Harbour in St. Catherine, and recalls the aftermath of the Kendall Train crash ( Jamaica's worst rail diaster). The book is a potpourri of authentic stories, some true, some ugly and sinister, some amusing. The book brings back all the childhood years of ghosts, gremlins and rolling calves, and brings to life the underbelly of a country devoutly religious, but yet open to the world of the 'bush doctor', replete with spirits and duppies.

Duppy Stories  Aug 19, 2002

duppy stories  Aug 19, 2002
i enjoyed the content immensely and the illustrations brought the stories to life. We live in an increasingly multicltural society and it is nice to read something of the west indian traditional stories.
Outstanding Little book  May 4, 2002
Loved all of these stories but then again I'm biased - the author is my Dad!!
Great stories to be told at family gatherings. The kids love to sit and listen to these tales. Half pretending to be frightened but at the same time thrilling at the gory details of some of them. The adults love the humour of the Jamaican 'old wives tales'.
Fascinating insight into the Jamaican culture
