Naemanson, you get an A+ for the book report, and 20 extra points for having actually read the entire book. I have to admit I rarely read a songbook from cover-to-cover, but I've been tempted to do it with this one. Usually, I'll pick a song and then look up what ten songbooks say about it. It was fascinating to read in the Sandy Ives book that "Peter Emberly" may be thought of as a "bad luck" song on Prince Edward Island. It's the one song that most people associate with PEI, but a good many people in that area believe that it's bad luck to sing it in one's home.
