Finnish Folk Culture
This is the first comprehensive account in English of Finland's material folk culture, habits and folklore. It contains a wealth of photographs and maps and provides a good insight into Finnish folk culture against the general cultural trends in Europe. The subject is made all the more interesting by the fact that Finland has for centuries been a melting pot for cultural influences from both East and West. Finnish Folk Culture is a handbook both for students and for anyone interested in folk tradition and its history. It contains an index and a bibliography of works in English and German.
