Editorial Reviews

"Here is an examination of the roots of prairie music that is long overdue . . . music from everywhere on earth, melded and coupled to the vigorous pulse of the Alberta countryside." -- Sid Marty, author of Leaning on the Wind"George Lyon has done a remarkably thorough job of research and approaches his subject with much affection. This is a book many people will enjoy . . . and is an important addition to prairie history and folklore." -- Sharon Butala, author of Coyote's Morning Cry
