"By going direct to the old timers who still remembered the original dances of early California days and their music, by describing these dances step by step from watching the dancers, and by recording the music and songs on a wire recorder, Miss Czarnowski has made a unique and important contribution to the field of folk dancing and California folklore... Dance games, couple dances, dances for sets of two couples, couple dances used for demonstration, and group dances are included. Thirty-nine difference dances with their music are presented." - dustjacket flap.
