This 623 page book contains over 300 songs, many favorites and many new that have not been heard before. In addition to all the music for each song, a comprehensive history of each is given. Mr. Lomax believes that "in folk songs, the American people have put forth their dreams and their repressed desires, both good and evil." Thus in tracing the history of each song, the author gives a new interpretation to familiar old songs and gives a peoples' history of the United States.
