The Mexican folk tradition, varied and richly expressive of the inner life not only of a people but also of the individual as he lives it and personalizes it, is abundantly present in the United States ... This collection represents an important contribution to the study of that tradition and to the study of the changes urban life effects on traditional folklore" (dust jacket).
