The book attempts to resent a comprehensive picture of the vast treasure of folklore of this important North-Eastern Indian State.

Various racial groups living in close proximity and contributing to intricate social and cultural patterns have made Assam a land of great diversity. Its topography, a mixture of hills and plains, is equally varied. It has a rich and varied tradition of art, folk dance and oral literature, and celebrates through out the year many fairs and festivals, the best known of which is Bihu. Its tribal textile designs, spear motifs and decorative articles are well known for their uniqueness.
