Documents travelling choirs in Indiana starting during the Great Depression and shows the influence music has on raising people's spirits during hard times. In this book, the author depicts the lives of rural farm women who travelled through the countryside singing songs. The choral group has lasted over seventy years and this catalogues through archival material, interviews, and scrapbooks kept by the women themselves, the life of this Depression Era Program. What began in the 1930's has grown out of obscurity into an inter-state travelling music organization inspiring many offshoots.
