American Folklore (1959)

American Folklore
Tracing the forms and content of American folklore, Mr. Dorson reveals the richness, pathos, and humor of genuine folklore, which he distinguishes from the 'fakelore' of popularizers and chauvinists. At the same time, he shows what the creation of spurious folklore discloses about our national character.
