KIRKUS REVIEW

A beautiful book which will prove valuable in its particular field, as was the Folk Art of Rural Pennsylvania This volume gives more of the historical and social and economic background, the merging in some instances, the continued separation in others, of the Spanish-Mexican and the Indian aspects of village life and arts. The architecture, the tools and techniques, the many-faceted religious aspects, factors affecting life and arts of the villagers, the survivals of a primitive economy, the phases of family and community life -- and throughout the intimate link with expression in folk arts and crafts.
