Reviews

This collection serves well as an introduction and one must applaud Ms. Henderson...fascinating Journal of the Finnish Church Guild Not only could the texts in this book provide a most colourful entry to the study of the folktale but a basic course for students could be designed with the use of the scholarly data given... never before translated into English Folklore a very accessible and valuable collection Southern Folklore, University of Western Kentucky The collection will be of value Legacy
