Songs of the Southwest Country

Hidden gems abound on the Internet for the intrepid researcher. Many books that were published in the 1800's have been scanned and put online. If you want a glimpse into an 1890's poet's feeling for the land we live in --- look at this book. It can be read online or downloaded. Those who do a school marm impression might look at this for your "classroom". Although today, we might call the poems "sappy". They provide us with insight into the settling of the American West. http://archive.org/stream/songsfromsouthwe00mill#page/n7/mode/2up The archive.org website is a great site to find public domain books of all kinds.
