Abstract/ Summary

Professor Norman Cazden of the Univ. of Maine at Orono has collected a practical, very singable assortment of folk music and ballads from the Catskill Mountain bards who used to sing at Camp Woodland in Phoenicia. His choice of material has been guided by what has proven useful and enjoyable. Many of the songs have served for dramatization, dance and other group treatments in schools, in outdoor camping, for stage projects and for just plain singing. Originally included as part of Prof. Cazden's ABELARD FOLKSONG BOOK (long out of print), A CATSKILL SONGBOOK had been republished by Purple Mountain Press Ltd., for the first time in softcover.
