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.
