Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0962755419, Hardcover)From the Inside Cover: It is a Monday in late May. Six men form up in two lines of three facing a musician, odd numbers on the left, even on the right. They are all dressed neatly in white with rosettes or favors and ribbons pinned to their shirts and a cluster of small brass bells on a leather pad is fixed to each shin. Just before the musician strikes up the tune, a dubious-looking character steps forward to address the assembled crowd. He wears a clown suit, has his face painted somewhat crudely with red and green make-up, and swings a dried pig's bladded attached by a short string to the end of a stick. "Here we be, masters," he declares, "six fools and," pointing to himself, "one dancer!" To understand this characterization of the Morris is to know the quality without a name. To be able to learn from it is to follow the timeless way of Morris dancing and use its pattern language. If this book serves as a gate to the timeless way for any dancer, musician, spectator, or teacher it will have fulfilled its purpose.
