KIRKUS REVIEW

In a diversified sampling, this compilation includes art, architecture, occupations, religion, superstition, myth, legend, song, dance and riddles, and places some important examples of folklore in their historical contexts. We see the origin of N.E. names like Bailey's Mistake, Ragged Island, Bunker's Whore and Buzzard's Bay... A surprising collection which points out how much of folklore is a disguise or exaggeration of the real past.
