About this book
Sam Stone, an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Birmingham, Alabama, gives banjo lessons to a promising Gates scholar as Sam undergoes a bitter divorce with his second wife and boss, Linda Lott. Meanwhile, Sam's ex-wife, Regina Jones Oliveira, a direct descendant of the former Confederate families from Americana, Brazil, wants Sam back and launches an international plan of action to get what she wants. The story carries the reader on a legal expedition to the former Panama Canal Zone, modern Panama, the Cayman Islands, and Switzerland. Against this background, Sam and his talented Labrador retriever, Holmes, take on some very clever Vietnam era veterans with foreign accounts and rich real estate holdings. These crooks hold a huge advantage because they have a federal judge on their side.

    A Beautiful Tapestry

    In this book, the authors weave a tapestry of Appalachian music that is very colorful and very beautiful. This tapestry begins with strands of fiber spun in Scotland and Ireland. During the centuries long voyage across the Atlantic, strands of fiber are added. After becoming Americans, Appalachian residents continued to contribute additional strands of fiber of various colors. The authors of this book describe how all of these strands have been woven into this beautiful tapestry.This book is beautifully illustrated and is divided into three main divisions--Beginnings, Voyage, and Singing a New Song. Each division is comprised of Sidebars and Voices of Tradition. This format and the photographs, paintings and illustrations make the book very interesting and enjoyable. This format also makes the book easy to read "a little at a time".I found the extensive timeline in the back of the book to be very helpful and referenced it periodically.

    A Disappointing Coffee Table Book

    I found this book disappointing. I'm interested in both the Scotch-Irish and Appalachian musical traditions and of course know Fiona Ritchie's "Thistle and Shamrock" program for NPR. The text has interesting material on some of the earlier ballad collectors, particularly Olive Dame Campbell, who was the model for the film "Songcatcher." The "sidebars" and interviews are often interesting. But the discussion of mid-twentieth-century extensions of the tradition seems vague in its aesthetic judgments, citing Elvis Presly, the Kingston Trio and the Beach Boys as extensions of the ballad tradition. Little distinction is made between these musicians and more intentional re-workings of the old material by groups like the New Lost City Ramblers or Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Boys (the latter barely mentioned). Elvis is lauded for integrating black and white musical styles, when in fact these were influencing each other as far back as the African-American string... 3/5 NRL - See all my reviews This review is from: Wayfaring Strangers: The Musical Voyage from Scotland and Ulster to Appalachia (Hardcover) I found this book disappointing.

    Haunting text, Haunting music

    0 5/5 Cenda Price - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wayfaring Strangers: The Musical Voyage from Scotland and Ulster to Appalachia (Hardcover) Beautiful book, excellent cd which integrates very well with the text. This book explains alot about the melancholy underpinnings of most balladry in the South - the theme of loss and mystery, a basic sadness, the need to report the state of reality right now and face it, and the drive so many who live here have to succeed. We have to make it work: there is no going back. I have a new appreciation for those who have preceeded me, each and every one. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 3, 2014
