Edith Fowke's collection of sixty-five songs, recorded from former shantyboys, is unique, being the first in this field to exclude the more general songs popular in the bunkhouse. Mrs. Fowke presents a vivid picture of life in the north woods before the days of mechanization. Tunes transcribed by Norman Cazden.
