Understanding the rudiments allows the drummer to communicate with other drummers and also have the ability to interpret terminology and rhythms that are so often seen in music and music publications. This book is designed for drummers of all levels who would like knowledge of the snare drum rudiments but haven´t had the advantage of studying them formally. It is a quick, simple approach that can be learned by any drummer who can do single strokes and double strokes [strokes using the stick rebound]. While this method is not meant to be a substitute for the traditional way of learning the drum rudiments, which I totally recommend, one of the advantages of it is that it is a fast, easy alternate method that will give an understanding of the how the rudiments are played and should sound. If nothing else, this book will improve the drummer´s overall technique and playing. After studying the approach described, it will be an easy transition to take the study of the rudiments further learning to play them in the traditional way and apply them to the drumset.

Cast ashore in the American colonies, the Frasers are faced with a bleak choice: return to a Scotland fallen into famine and poverty, or seize the risky chance of a new life in the New World - menaced by Claire´s certain knowledge of the coming Revolution. Still, a Highlander is born to risk - and so is a time-traveler. Their daughter, Brianna, is safe - they think - on the other side of a dangerous future; their lives are their own to venture as they will. With faith in themselves and in each other, they seek a new beginning among the exiled Scottish Highlanders of the Cape Fear, in the fertile river valleys of the Colony of North Carolina. Even in the New World, though, the Frasers find their hope of peace threatened from without and from within; by the British Crown and by Jamie´s aunt, Jocasta MacKenzie, last of the MacKenzies of Leoch. A hunger for freedom drives Jamie to a Highlander´s only true refuge: the mountains. And here at last, with no challenge to their peace - save wild animals, Indians, and the threat of starvation - the Frasers establish a precarious foothold in the wilderness, secure in the knowledge that even war cannot invade their mountain sanctuary.
