I have not read this book, but in researching the folklore of Bulgarian folk songs, I was surprised and delighted to find that this book provided the translation of the haunting Bulgarian song- Mari Maro- that I had only recently heard via YouTube. Having heard the song, I then went looking for information on Bulgarian folk songs in general and Mari Maro in particular. On page 214, the subject book has the actual lyrics of the song in Bulgarian and English. The book outlines the background of the song which is about the rape and kidnaping of a young girl at the hands of invading Muslims.
