Red.anm: Bokmelderen ble forespurt av 2019-redaksjonen.
The anthology contains multiple photographs taken by Saba during his fieldwork and includes both an introduction by Line Esborg of NSF (Sámi text 9-37; Norwegian text 39-72) and an afterword jointly written by Marko Jouste, Markus Juutinen, and Miika Lehtinen of the University of Oulu (283-291; 293-301). For the student of Nordic cultural history, the scholar of Sámi culture, or the folklorist/ ethnomusicologist, Optegnelser/ ÄŒállosat is a treasure-trove. It should be acquired by every research library with an interest in Nordic ethnography. It would also prove enlightÂening and entertaining to a generalist reader and could be profitably used in Norwegian- or Sámi-language courses focusing on folk narrative and belief.
