Description

Carl Sandburg was not only one of America's best-loved poets but also a collector and performer of American folk music. In his travels over the United States, talking about poetry and reading his verse, he frequently used to close the program with a session of songs, providing commentary along the way. This long-established anthology, compiled by Sandburg and "his friends from coast to coast and from the Gulf to Canada, " contains singable words and music--complete harmonizations or piano accompniments--to 290 songs, ballads, and ditties that people have sung in the making of America.
