“I applaud the editors for their work! It is certainly about time that someone has finally edited an anthology of Mormon folklore scholarship. The articles chosen for the volume are both fascinating to read and useful pedagogically since they represent the work of many well-respected folklore scholars.”—Leonard Norman Primiano, Cabrini College
“I am completely enamored of this book! It is not only an excellent compilation of key essays over the course of Mormon folklore studies, but it also contributes much in the way of original interpretation and commentary. This book will become a trusted reference and standard in the fields of Mormon folklore, religious studies, and folkloristics.”—Elaine Thatcher, coeditor of Cowboy Poets and Cowboy Poetry
