I've been looking for something like this for years. We all forgot folk music for a time, but it really rocks! Sort of.
Overall, the scan is of good quality. In some places it is not the best, but it never interferes with the understanding of the text or music.

The book itself is an excellent resource for anyone looking into Appalachian-English folk songs.
This is a great book but not in the electronic form. The music scores are not scanned but converted to alphabet letters and symbols, and come out as nonsense. I had earlier purchased the reprinted scanned version but the music scores scanned very poorly with missing staff lines, missing notes, etc., so I had to return it. You can read the scanned book on line; don't try to download it to your Kindle: that will not work either.
