More Description


This rollicking collection of songs, dances, games, and rhymes from the legendary Illinois Ozarks will be of in-terest to folklorists and teachers. Thanks to David McIntosh and his pur-suit of a lost tradition, the heritage of a special section of the country has been preserved in this delightful and enter-taining collection. Here are materials for the performance of folk music, for the teacher in K-12, for the amateur folk-lorist, for party books for adults, and for source hunting by musicologists. The themes, the songs, the children's rhymes, singing games, and square dances--many with words and music, together with commentary on them--are all here in this rousing collection of folk songs and singing games.
