In sharing the story of Homer the dulcimer I have received much encouragement and some suggestions. I have taken all of it in and reflective in allowing others to see my work and offer ways in which I can make the book better. I have tried to incorporate those ideas where they would enhance the book. These ideas have allowed me to better define the characters and to answer some question that may arise as the reader goes on this journey with Homer. I hope all of my readers will enjoy this story that somehow I have the honor and duty to tell.
