This is a real treasure for people who collect United States Americana literature about the social life and customs in the New England states of Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
The book was compiled and edited by B.A. Botkin. The late Benjamin Botkin was one of America's most eminent folklorists. He served as folklore expert for the Library of Congress and as President of the American Folklore Society. The detailed footnotes in the book are an invaluable bibliography to folklorists and researchers.
These are the Yankees - the salty, shrewd, thrifty, ingenious, laconic, crotchety, pixilated, God Fearing people of New England. These are the customs they preserve and the traditions they treasure, the stories they tell and the songs they sing, their myths and mythology in folk tale and folk speech. These are their heroes and sages, showmen and tricksters, eccentrics and strong men - Israel Putnam, Ethan Allen, Timothy Dexter, P.T. Barnum, Calvin Coolidge, and a host of local characters about whom a body of lively anecdote and colorful legend has grown up. Filled with the zest and sparkle of the woods and sea, the homely wisdom and craft spirit, of farm and village, the know how of the country store and factory, the mystery and magic of witchcraft and superstition, the neighborly fun of rural games, festivals and frolics, the thrills and yarns of hunting and fishing, "A Treasury of New England Folklore" is a compendium of all that's New England.
