Pub. Date: 02/28/1998
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
This text reader brings together the work of notable cultural geographers and folklife scholars to provide a clear and engaging overview of American folklife. Defining folklife as the traditional shared culture of familial, ethnic, occupational, religious, and regional groups, this anthology strikes a balance between material and nonmaterial culture. Carney has chosen essays that explore intangibles such as religion, music, and sports as well as physical traits such as food and architecture in a way that brings traditional culture to life.
