Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've used chapters from this book to teach undergraduates about folk/popular religion on the U.S./Mexico borderlands. In a very readable format, Griffith presents serious research based on his fieldwork and portrays his sophisticated understanding of the religions and cultures of the region. The book is great for opening discussions with students about religious authority, competing religious narratives, concepts like 'borderlands' and mestizaje, etc. Anyone interested in the history of the region or in Latino/a religions would find this readable and enjoyable.

This is a wonderful little book full of tales some of which are well known, many are not so well known. Having been born & raised in Arizona, I was fascinated as I was reminded of old stories & learned so many new stories. Loved this book.
