One man's quest for his dream guitar inspires him to explore the instrument's
largely untold history.

What was it about a small, humble folk instrument that allowed it to become an American
icon? The guitar represents freedom, the open road, protest and rebellion, the blues, youth,
lost love, and sexuality. The guitar was picked up by everyone, miners and society ladies,
lumberjacks and presidents' wives, Hawaiians, African-Americans, Cajuns, jazz players,
spiritualists, cowboys, and teenagers. In time, it became America's instrument, its
soundtrack.

Tim Brookes explored these ideas while on a quest for his dream guitar that took him to
Vermont's Green Mountains where an amiable curmudgeon master guitarmaker, Rick Davis,
chose a rare piece of cherry wood and went to work with saws and rasps. When Tim wasn't
breathing over Rick's shoulder, he was trying to unravel why the guitar is "wall-to-wall popular
in the United States" and, to a lesser degree, throughout the world.

A regular commentator on National Public Radio's Sunday Weekend Edition, Tim Brookes has also had his work appear in National Geographic, Outside, American History, and Vintage Guitar.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
