Down the birch-lined roads of the Black Forest the peasant families, all in regional dress, gather for the dancing of the Schwarzwalder Bauerntanz. This and three other famous German dances are here described in detail with the music and dance steps. The gay traditional costumes are beautifully shown in four full-colour plates, and the text richly portrays the variety of dances to be found in Germany, from the cold, phlegmatic North with its figured quadrilles, to the mountainous South and its merry Alpine dances.

Miss Fyfe, one-time lecturer at the Ansey College of Physical Education, travelled widely in Germany, where she learned the local dances in the Black Forest, and also joined in with the dancing villagers of North Germany.
