Her husband, John C. Campbell, had promoted this idea but died before pursuing It. Olive Dame Campbell wrote this book after her trip and went on to found the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown NC, a school which still flourishes today. The book is signed by Campbell on the ffep to Mr. And Mrs. D. H. Burrell. This Burrell was the son of the famous New York inventor of the same name. On the front pastedown is the signature of Loomis Burrell who like his father held a number of patents. Campbell's signature is not common and the association with the Burrell family is quite evocative. The book also comes with an April, 1928 brochure from the John C.
