Pressestimmen"Filled with brilliant insights and tantalizing leads."-Western Folklore "Art historians will have to take notice of this study of folklore as broad cultural pattern. Using selected examples to show how patterns operate, he draws from diverse areas: architecture (the section on barns is particularly well done), tools, ethnic cookery, small boats, and many other forms. Careful definitions and a scholarly approach to a hitherto obscure subject are the book's greatest values."-Choice "This book is a must item for the serious student of American culture. It has more important things to say about its basic topic of folk architecture than any other work to date."-New York Geographical Review
