In 1935, the Federal Writers Project, a Great Depression stimulus package much criticized in its time, began to deliver its first dividends. In communities throughout the country, out-of-work writers, teachers, and scholars began gathering and organizing collections of local customs and folklore. Some of this research has been published, but much of it remains hidden in FWP archives in Washington and elsewhere. Wyoming Folklore is a historic publication: It is the first comprehensive published collection of FWP material on Wyoming folktales, beliefs, customs, and folk speech. Editor's recommendation.
