How many of you remember that song by John Denver. Every time I hear the song I get a good feeling. My new book gives me that kind of feeling too. I am enjoying this book and the process of creating this book on so many different levels. I love the instrument, I love bring the characters to life and I love relating the characters and situations to introduce conflict and resolution. Back to Country Roads. I went out today and looked for roads that might represent the premise of coming in contact with a dulcimer. Thus the double meaning of 'Dulicmer Crossing' (X'ing). You will have to wait until you get your own copy of the book to see if I was successful in using a picture to interpret the title.
