I bought a copy of this title when my sister got married in 2002 and she was thrilled to have it. Mrs. Knab deftly sorts through centuries of the various matrimonial customs found in Poland's different geographical regions and presents them in a manner which allows the reader to easily appreciate them all. Especially helpful (if one is planning/helping to plan a Polish-American wedding) are her "Touch of the Past" chapter endings in which the author recommends ways to make some of the seemingly useless or insignificant "Olde World" customs a part of a contemporary wedding for Americans of Polish (and proud, at that!) descent. It's only a pity this title's gone out of print; hopefully a paperbound edition will make its way to printing at some point in the future! Thanks, Mrs. Knab!!!
