Play me something quick and devilish : old-time fiddlers in Missouri by Howard W Marshall( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the French villages on the Mississippi River, the author explores the heritage of traditional fiddle music in Missouri. Leading us chronologically through the settlement of the state, Marshall considers the place of homemade music in people's lives across social and ethnic communities from the late 1700s to the World War I years and into the early 1920s. Through the settlement of the state of Missouri, Marshall investigates how these communities established our cultural heritage, the "Old Stock Americans," (primarily Scotch-Irish from Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia) ; African Americans, German-speaking immigrants, people with American Indian ancestry (focusing on Cherokee families dating from the Trail of Tears in the 1830s), and Irish railroad workers in the post-Civil War period. These are the primary communities whose fiddle and dance traditions came together on the Missouri frontier to cultivate the bounty of old-time fiddling enjoyed today

Paradise Valley, Nevada : the people and buildings of an American place by Howard W Marshall( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the early settlers came to Paradise Valley in northern Nevada in the 1860s and 1870s, they didn't have much to work with. Constructing their ranching community in the middle of a dry sagebrush plain that wasn't especially conducive to building, they could have admitted defeat or settled for a make-do form of construction. Happily, they didn't. Instead, as Howard Wight Marshall suggests in his invigorating analysis of the material culture of a frontier community, they left a rich legacy of vernacular architecture that still functions today and that offers a crucial key to another world. Marshall was well placed to appreciate this legacy. As the head of a multidisciplinary project mounted by the Library of Congress in the late 1970s, he was in charge of a research team devoted to documenting the folk history and daily life of the valley. As he interviewed families about the valley's history and construction and conducted a hands-on inspection and recording of surviving buildings, he increasingly realized just how much the community's architectural landscape revealed. In fact, Marshall argues, a society's material culture is one of the most expressive clues to its character: the handsomely constructed buildings of Paradise Valley are symbolic of its distinctive aesthetic system, its folk traditions and culture, its ethnicity and shared vision
