Unlike most other works on Hindu pilgrimage, Fruitful Journeys begins where the pilgrimage itself begins: at home, with an examination of local shrines, deities, and worship. Gold contributes significantly to the study of popular Hinduism by thus offering a unique perspective on pilgrims' values, presenting ethnographic data from a distinctive regional culture, and integrating the recorded texts of oral traditions with their performance contexts.
