About the Author:

Barbara Walker-Lloyd is former assistant director of the Fife Folklore Archives at Utah State University. She currently works at City Folk in Dayton, Ohio.

Review:

This collection of essays corrects an imbalance in the scholarship on folk belief by taking seriously experiences of the supernatural. Too much of the previous scholarship has focused on debunking folk belief or applying scholarly paradigms to exp lain away the belief -- Patrick Mullen, former president of the American Folklore Society
