Songs of work and protest by Edith Fowke( )

13 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

".. There are: straight trade union songs and ditties ... ; songs of the hardships that working men and women have to face during times of depression ; philosophic songs and ironic comments on the economic system ; songs that grew out of the fight against slavery ; and songs expressing the dreams of people of many lands throughout the ages. Often set to tunes of familiar folk songs, popular songs and gospel hymns, these are the songs by which unions organized and which thee members of each labor group sang out ... Most of the songs are American in origin. A few, drawn from England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Germany, Israel, and the Philippines remind us that the fight for freedom knows no boundaries ..." -- Back cover

"Sorcerers incanting over boiling cauldrons, a witch disguised as a goose, vicious poltergeists, a woman-warrior, a dangerous enchantress - these are a few of the beings that inhabit Canada's rich folklore tradition." "Legends Told in Canada is Edith Fowke's selection of Canadian historical legends, of British and French origin, illustrated with artifacts from the collections of the Royal Ontario Museum. Of historical legends Fowke writes, "They are more apt to be linked to a particular place or situation, and therefore reflect a country's history and culture more than other folktales."" "Although native legends are often regarded as a separate study, they sometimes share motifs with non-native lore: Tecumseh, like King Arthur and Charlemagne, is a figure who in legend will one day return to lead his people." "Legends Told in Canada combines historical chronicle and artifact to bring to life a vanished past and the voices of those who told the tales."--Jacket
