In any event, even though my family moved to a more prosperous part of the state, the feelings of that remote area are woven through of family's life and find their way into the stories I tell in my Dry Creek series. When it came time to do what I call 'a bigger promotion' of my books, I decided to write a song to talk about the values of that area. Fortunately, I have a good friend who was a professional musician 'in the day' and was eager to help me bring my lyrics to life. I now have a You Tube of that song. I located Depression era photos to go with the song (one of those photos is shown here). These are actual pictures taken by a US government program during the years of the depression. You can listen to part of the song here. You will need to scroll down a little until you see my name and Montana Quilting Song.Come listen to a song I wrote. Lyrics by me, music by my good friend, David White. Dpression era photos.
It's a tribute to my Dry Creek books. http://youtu.be/CUHryjL-pug
The full song is available as an MP3 on Amazon under the name Denim Sky. Search for my name in the MP3 section and you will find it. I was very pleased with the way the song spoke to the values I learned in Montana as a child. Oh, and if you are so inclined, leave a comment on the song, either after the You Tube or on Amazon where you can also hear a bit of it in the MP3 section.
