In this study of Canadian folklore, Edith Fowke, a much-published scholar and anthologizer of Canadian folklore, argues that it is "the material that is handed on by tradition, either by word of mouth or by custom and practice...about which historians write." She examines in detail collectors, folktales, folk music, minor genres (speech, riddles, proverbs, childlore, beliefs), folk arts and material culture, folklife and customs, and various books about these subjects.
