The Book of the Bagpipe relates the evolution of the bagpipe from the reeded pipes of ancient civilizations to its present-day position as a Scottish cultural icon, an evocative emblem of Celtic heritage, and a legitimate musical instrument. Delightfully illustrated with photographs, engravings, and color paintings of pipes and pipers through the ages, this book makes an ideal gift for anyone with an interest in Celtic music and history.
