Reviews

This exquisite little book offers a brief history of milagros, Latin American religious offerings cum folk art. Establishing their connection to votive objects worldwide in pre-Christian times, then tracing their association with Catholic saints, Egan laments both the scant documenta tion of their earlier use and their recent decline as religious objects. The complete text is given in both English and Spanish, and printed on heavy colored stock. Most pleasing are the color and black-and- white photos, presenting not only the diversity of Latin American milagros but also their precursors and corollaries from around the world. Considering the growing availability of milagros in the United States, this book is recommended wherever there is patron interest in Southwestern/Latin American folk art. --Eric Bryant, ``Library Journal''
