Reviews

'Winifred Morgan's treatment of America's ethnic trickster traditions is insightful, engaging, and unique in its comprehensiveness, covering as she does five ethnicities - African American, Native American, Euro American, Asian American, and Latino/a American. No previous scholar has attempted such a mammoth undertaking.' Edward J. Piacentino, Emeritus Professor of English, High Point University, NC and author of Southern Frontier Humor: New Approaches
