    Henry Glassie wrote this wonderfully respectful portrait of a rural Irish community in the nineteen seventies, recording the work practices and the social patterns of its farming people in great detail. He pays particular attention to the strong story-telling tradition that was still alive in the community at that time. He recorded many stories in great detail and highlighted the strong connection between factual history and myth. Now that such story-tellers and their way of life are gone foreve [...]

    I second Julie H.'s positive review. I discovered this book in the mid 90s and immediately found it to be an amazingly thorough ethnographic analysis of the relationship between traditional culture and new technologies.

Many books have come and gone over the years, but this one will always hold a prominent place on my bookshelf.

It's an ethnography of an Ulster community with such amazing attention to detail--to everything from the music of the ceili, to two brothers rethatching their roof, to the earthenware in the cupboard. For anyone interested in Irish history and culture or in how to magically write about material culture, this is a classic.

His purpose, as the book’s subtitle indicat [...]

    A beautifully written book that tells a lot more than just life in a small Northern Irish community. It's a book that deserves attention when being read, and patience as well, but it's also a rewarding experience to start and finish it.

    About as engaging as a cultural anthropology book can be expected to be.

    Dense and rich and delicious - I could only read a chapter at a time. Otherwise it's like trying to eat a whole cheesecake. Might be my favorite non-fiction book. Gorgeous

    I became a folklore major in college after listening to a lecture by Henry Glassie that I will never forget.
