Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

History is subject to historian prejudice, to scant and select fact and fancy, and, above all, to that innate desire to make sense of life. The Native American Flute: Myth, History, Craft is not much different from any other accounting of history. After all, much of its content relies upon fact polluted by myth and myth diluted by fact. The book's accounting, however, is an attempt to separate flute myth from flute fact, providing a better understanding of the Native American flute's true place and function in history as well as in today's culture, revealing aspects that have become obscured by the perpetuated idea that the instrument is and has always been little more than a tool with which a man could seduce a woman. The book explores events that led to the development and use of the native flute by both women and men, as well as the myths that have grown up around its use. The book's final section provides readers with detailed instruction on crafting both the ancient, end-blown native flute and the modern native flute. Explore. Craft. Play.
