Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This entertaining anthology presents the astonishing breadth of American folklore, embracing beliefs, myths, sketches, and tall tales that reflect the American experience. Though modest in length, it effectively covers America's polyglot society, ranging from Native Americans to African Americans, Asian Americans, and European Americans. Assembled from original documents and secondary sources, the vignettes reveal a country full of characters vital to our collective memory, from Paul Revere to Superman. The headnotes are exceptionally informative. The editors, who collaborated previously on God: Myths of the Male Divine (LJ 1/96), here continue in the spirit of the late Ben Botkin (e.g., A Treasury of American Folklore, 1944). Deftly arranged and clearly written, this anthology celebrates the diversity and rich heritage shared by all Americans.?Richard K. Burns, MSLS, Hatboro, PA
