society-including superstitious rituals, the use of anting-anting (amulets), and the continued reverence for traditional healers--are also detailed.A Visual Guide to Philippine Folklore invites readers to an enchanting and imaginative journey into
mythological landscapes conjured by Filipino communities ancient and modern-striving to make sense of the mysteries of the world around them.
