Thread Name: Origins: The Big Rock Candy Mountain(s)
Subject: Orig: Big Rock Candy Mountain
I've already misplaced a book I've only had for a few months, Hal Rammel's 'The Big Rock Candy Mountain, and other Utopias', at least that's the way I remember the title (it's still available). He gives MacClintock's (original?) "Big Rock Candy Mountain", and many others. The rock candy mountain seems to be first found in a 17th century ballad "An Invitation to Lubberland" which is in Rammel's book and on my website, www.erols.com/olsonw , among other on Utopia in the songs file.
