The Pocket Treasury of American Folklore
edited by B.A. Botkin
originally published in 1944
American folklore is another passion of mine, something I picked up in childhood. One of the things I wonder about is whether or not kids these days have the chance to learn about this kind of thing, or if their attention has been directed elsewhere (notably with electronic gadgetry). Regardless, I'm always collecting books like this.
