Panoramic in scope, the 45 songs, coupled with works of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming, chronicle the stirring saga of westward expansion and reflect every facet of life during one of the most exciting periods in our nation's history.

Wyeth, as well as a myriad of fascinating artifacts: saddles, spurs, guns, guitars, a stagecoach ticket, a Navajo blanket, and other objects that provide a vivid picture of life in the West. A lively and intriguing text further illuminates this bygone world, exploring the history of the songs, their lyrics, the accompanying art, and the development of the West. The music, arranged for beginning to intermediate musicians and accompanied by chords for the guitar or banjo, is suitable for piano, organ, violin, or recorder."

255 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "Ontario, more than any other region of Canada, exhibits a variety of architectural styles, building forms and materials. Some buildings reflect the exacting standards of an architect. Others feature an eclectic mixing from many styles, including folk. (This book) explores for the first time the common elements that unite Ontario's varied styles while describing the province's distinguishing vernacular features and forms. More than a guide to 200 years of architecture, it identifies building terms and unique building forms not ecessarily associated with any one style. To illustrate each style, all types of buildings are included, from residences to public buildings and gas stations. The author gently contradicts the traditional view that heritage buildings must be old. He includes many 'modern' twentieth century examples of which Ontario has an abundance. Once having sampled the grammar and vocabulary of our rich and varied architectural heritage, the reader will look at buildings in and out of Ontario with a new discrimmination and perspective."

"Wilhelm Busch (1832-1908), endowed with an equipotent facility with sketch-pad and rhyming dictionary, c reated during his career some of the most arresting sketches and drollest verses the world has ever seen. Few men since his time have shown the same ability to match simple yet penetrating pictures with rollicking, quotable verse. In his n a t i v e G e rmany he is still by all odds the best-loved creator of illustrated light verse....(Many of his pithy aphorisms have long since become folk sayings among the Germans.) The variety of tone and subject matter is wide: Busch is in tur n ma le vo le nt , j ov ial, sardonic, diabolical and even bloodthirsty as he castigates hypocrisy, stodginess, stupidity, egotism, drunkenness, and other human foibles....The English translations are both ingenious and faithful; in most cases they a re the fi rst En gl ish tr anslations ever made. Those who do not read German may be certain that the original has been translated into English with its spiciness and sense intact. Both the German and the English appear side by side, so that re ade rs o f Ge rman may sa vor Busc h's own delightful rhymes, while those who are learning German will find it an enjoyable way to gain familiarity with the langauge...."
