In this book Bill C. Malone recalls the lost worlds of pioneering fiddlers and pickers, balladeers and yodelers. As he looks at ""hillbilly"" music's pre-commercial era and its early popular growth through radio and recordings, he shows us that it was a product not only of the British Isles but of diverse African, German, Spanish, French, and Mexican influences.
