Old World Traditions Alive in America

This lushly illustrated book belongs in every American library and any home that values diversity and Old World traditions. Dozens of bright, colorful photographs by Blair Seitz make the lively text by Georg R. Sheets a pleasure to behold. I counted dozens of ethnic groups represented in this hard cover large format volume. From the Native American Festival held in Sullivan County to the San Rocco Festival held in Aliquippa, this book makes you feel like you are there. Ukrainians, Italian, Croatians, Irish, Swedish, Lithuanians, and Jewish groups are just a few of the traditions explored here. Take a look at the foods, crafts, parades, festivals, music and holidays that add to the festive Pennsylvania experience reflected around the globe. It's a must for anyone conscious of the fact that we live on a very small globe, indeed.
