The past was a noise and music filled place; and while we can't recreate the past precisely, listening and playing the music people used to listen to is an excellent way to feel like you're really there. 'Westward Ho! The Heart of the Old West' features some of America's most beloved folk songs that helped thousands of American pioneers leave the safety and comfort of home.

The first portion of the book provides historical backgrounds to the song, and connects each song to its moment in history. The second portion provides sheet music with chords and lyrics. Dozens of historical pictures are also included throughout!
The included CD feature approximately 50 minutes of rousing, professional recordings.
