" Despite the homogenization of American life, areas of strong regional consciousness still persist in the United States, and there is a growing interest in regionalism both among the public and among academics. In response to that interest ten folklorists here describe and interpret a variety of American regional cultures in the twentieth century. Sense of Place is the first book to deal specifically with regional culture and the first to employ the perspective of folklore in the study of regional identity and consciousness.
