To this theme the author brings impressive research and notable facility in the comparative study of myth while at the same time presenting the material in an entirely accessible, lucid and interesting manner. Few topics are more relevant today, in a time when the self-definition of Americans is such an influential force on the global stage. Buck's firm theoretical framework and rigorous documentation make this a significant contribution to contemporary discussions of the place, role and future of the diversity of religions that make up America today.

Using myths and visions of minority faiths as angels of visions, Buck has introduced an engageing and fresh new approach to understanding and appreciating the influence of these faiths on America's role in the world. He does this by bringing these minority faiths from the periphery of scholalry discourse to the center of a new, more inclusive scholalry discourse.
Above all, Buck keeps the reader engaged and intrigued in a study that reads like a good novel by a warm fire on a cold winter evening. Libraries Unlimited.
