For those seeking a source where "every religious and civil observance in modern times has been documented . . .," this exhaustive listing will surely come close to fulfilling its promise. Under each of the days in the year are found holidays, Saints' and Blesseds' days (nearly 3000), birthdates of celebrities and the famous, and world historical events since the beginning of recorded history. A 97-page index will assist in quickly associating names, terms, and events. Less depth of information on special days is provided than in Jane M. Hatch's American Book of Days or Ruth W. Gregory's venerable standard, Anniversaries and Holidays . Recommended for quick reference access. Stanley P. Hodge, Ball St. Univ. Lib., Muncie, Ind.
