Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The encyclopedia is groundbreaking, not because it is the first attempt to survey Latino folklore, but because it is so comprehensive. The editor, a highly regarded folklorist, however, warns that it is not an exhaustive study or a collection of folkloric texts. It stands proudly as one of the strongest reference works in multicultural America." - ARBA

"This three-volume collection could have been dubbed 'Everything You Wanted to Know about Latino Culture But Didn't Even Realize You Should Ask.' . . . Recommended for academic libraries with multicultural liberal arts majors, high school libraries, and large public libraries." - Booklist

"A good introduction, which defines the term Latino; a very complete bibliography; and an appendix of medicinal plants round out the set, making this a good starting point for high school or undergraduate research. Summing up: recommended." - Choice
