First published in 1988, this award-winning compendium of New Mexico's folklore is now available in a shorter, easier to use, updated edition.

"A masterful encyclopedia. . . . a superb reference to historical folklore traditions in New Mexico up to World War II. It will stand alone as an invaluable synthesis of history, literature, ethnography, and material culture."-- Journal of the Southwest

"The central theme of the book is the concept of New Mexico life as a multiethnic experience drawn from the Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures. The work is part history, part ethnography, and part anthropology. . . . This is a work that should appeal to all aficionados of New Mexican history and life. . . . A delight to read."-- Journal of the West

"Demonstrates in a dramatic fashion that the subject matter of folklore is not the quaint and peripheral cultural bypaths of bygone days, but rather a means of approaching the basic attitudes, beliefs, and ways of thinking about things on which much cultural behavior is based. This is a good, thought-provoking job on a monumental task."-- Journal of Arizona History

"Jam-packed with drama and information. . . . For the newcomer, the long-time resident and the lifetime native of New Mexico, this book will be a delight."-- New Mexico Magazine
