101 CAIN, Kit Leaves In The Wind
Soulful Stories Publishing, Yarmouth, N.S., 2006, ISBN:0978000544 
CAIN, Kit. Leaves In The Wind. Yarmouth, N.S.: Soulful Stories Publishing, 2006. Pp (6),1-133,(5). 8vo, white card covers. “The central figure of thisshort story is a biker named Montana LeFandra (not his real name). I was a bout to say "hero" of this story, but, on thinking about it, the shoe doesn't really fit the foot. Though the teller of the story might well see himself as a hero, there's some question about whether others would. Montana's swears to God the story is absolutely true. The only trouble I have with hisstatement is that I'm not at all sure who his God is . or how much of the story he lived himself, heard from someone else, or read about. A good story pulls me to it like fiddle music from a dance hall on Saturday night. I've heard a few good stories in my travels around the world, but very few long enough or believable enough to write a short story about. With Montana, however, it was different. We spent five months of the winter in the same RVpark in Southern California and he seemed to enjoy telling his story is mu ch as I enjoyed listening to it . regardless of how true it was. The ratheramazing thing to me was this: after I've heard someone else's story for an hour or two, I may remember the more exciting parts-or the more vividly de scribed events-but the memory's usually gone after a few days or weeks. Montana's story I remember every detail of, and have for five years! In fact, I wrote this story three years after I heard it from him. That says a lot more for his story-telling ability than it does for my memory! Montana claimed to be the Founding Father of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club which started out as himself and a bunch of his biker buddies drinking, carousing with women, and spending weekends at various hideaways on the desert and in the mountains of southern California.They had so much fun that the Club gradually grew in size to over two thousand members . and also became a major management problem! How Montana handled it is a story in itself, but what hedid after an all-out life and death war with Hell's Angels is another stor y again . all of it written as faithfully as I can remember it between these two covers." - from the back cover. Very good to fine. 8.50

118 CANTWELL, Robert When We Were Good : The Folk Revival. First Edition nin dustjacket
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts / London, England, 1996, ISBN:0674961328 
CANTWELL, Robert. When We Were Good : The Folk Revival. Cambridge, Massachusetts / London, England : Harvard University Press, 1996. First Edition. Pp(6),[vii]-viii,(4),[1]-412,(8). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, red cloth spine, tan paper covered boards, black lettering to spine. "When We Were Good traces the many and varied cultural influences on the folk revival of the sixties: early nineteenth-century blackface minstrelsy; the Jewish entertainmentand political cultures of New York in the 1930s; the Almanac singers and t he wartime crises of the 1940s; the watershed record album Folkways Anthology of American Folk Music; and finally the cold-war reactionism of the 1950s that drove the folksong movement, just as Pete Seeger and the Weavers were putting "On Top of Old Smokey" and "Goodnight, Irene" on the Hit Parade, into a children's underground of schools, summer camps, and colleges, planting the seeds of the folk revival to come. The book is not so much a history as a study of the cultural process itself, what the author calls the dreamwork of history. Cantwell shows how a body of music once enlisted on behalf of the labor movement antifascism, New Deal recovery efforts, and many other progressive causes of the 1930s was refashioned as an instrument of self-discovery, even as it found new agenda and styles in the peace, civil rights, and beat movements. At Washington Square and the Newport Folk Festival, on college campuses and in concert halls across the country, the folk revival gave voice to the generational tidal wave of postwar youth, going backto the basics and trying to be very, very good. In this capacious analysis of the ideologies, traditions, and personalities that created an extraordi nary moment in American popular culture, Cantwell explores the idea of folkat the deepest level. Taking up some of the more obdurate problems in cult ural studies - racial identity, art and politics, regional allegiances, class differences - he shows how the folk revival was a search for authentic democracy, with compelling lessons for our own time." (from the dj). Contents : Prologue: Tom Dooley : History of a Song. 1. We Are the Folk : Backgrounds of the Revival. 2. The New Minstrelsy : Jim Crow and John Henry. 3. Ballad for Americans : The Search for a People's Opera. 4. Ramblin' Round YourCity : The Almanac Singers. 5. Wasn't That a Time : Folk Music and the Col d War. 6.
