About the book:

One of the greatest appeals of the American Southwest lies in its balance of three cultures-- Hispanic, Indian, and Anglo-- each as rich and vital as the others, and nowhere as vibrant as in southern Arizona; yet there are more ingredients in Arizona's melting pot. From familiar arts like Mexican-American murals, Tohono O'odham popovers, and cowboy saddlery to such unexpected ones as Norwegian dancing, Ukrainian egg decorating, and Japanese origami, folklorist James S. Griffith captures the spirit of these diverse worlds in a delightful book that focuses on those public arts that have long been enjoyed by visitors and residents alike. Enhanced by numerous photographs, Southern Arizona Folk Arts shows how people from many cultures have made the desert a place of celebration.
