Hi Myra,

I searched a bit and found this: ... tCode=1238

Maybe that's the one you're looking for. The image for the book has a website for the author.

Welcome to Everything Dulcimer. Also attached is a link to Jim Miller's website. He has several other books that might be useful for you, too.

Jerry Rockwell's book is great! If I could begin again my dulcimer journey Jerry's Music Theory and Robert Force's In Search of the Wild Dulcimer are the only books I would buy.
