KIRKUS REVIEW

A wide ranging selection of folk songs from the American West from roughly about 1840 to the turn of the century. Brief historical essays introduce each section and the documentation for each song is included. Mr. Silber writes easily and pleasantly, ignoring the temptation to take on the folk song scholars and instead concentrates on the entertainment function. The music is annotated arranged and edited by Mr. Robinson. A reliable entry for the folk song shelf.
