    Henry Glassie has the enviable job of collecting folklore in small Irish towns. This book is part memoir of his time among the residents of Ballymenone, and part primer in Irish folklore. The book comes with a cd with his personal recordings of the storytelling and musical talents of several residents. In some places it loses itself a little, but for the most part it's a beautiful book. Read for English 577.03: Irish Folklore
