It is unreadable on my Kindle Fire.
Tried to download it to my Windows computer and message said it is incompatible.
1. Jean Ritchie writes beautifully of her own history with the dulcimer, a history that any dulcimer lover will want to know.
2. She writes knowingly and well about many dulcimer players and makers, providing background information that can only come from someone who knew these people.
3. There are a few songs (generally standard notation plus tab) in the book, and most of these songs were new to me.
4. The review by C. Brooks describes more fully describes the rich content of the book.
5. So, based on content, this is a must-read five star book for dulcimer people.
1. The Kindle edition is a facsimile of the printed edition. That means that it is only readable on a large screen, such as a desktop computer or a large tablet. It cannot be read on, say, a smartphone or a smaller Kindle. Also, being a facsimile, the font is not crisp, so even on a large screen, the font isn't great. (Most pages are in double column format.) So, based on the e-book edition, I would give one star.
