Summary

Widely acclaimed for her award-winning picture books, Deborah Hopkinson presents the amazing story of John A. Lomax, the fi rst man to popularize such great American folk songs as Sweet Betsy from Pike,” Git Along Little Dogies” and, of course, Home on the Range.”When John was a boy in Texas, he wrote down all he’d learned from cowboys. Years later, with the encouragement of a beloved teacher, John set out on a cross-country trip to fi nd more songs for a book. Taking along his clunky Ediphone recording device, he convinced cowboys and Gypsies to sing for him and soon he had hundreds of songs preserved for generations to come.S. D. Schindler’s gorgeous art brings the West alive in this inspiring story of discovery, which shows that if you love something as a child, you don’t have to give it up as an adult!
