An eighth piping text book of collected articles on Australian Piping from author and piper Bruce Campbell.

In April 1986 Dunroon Publishing released the very first issue of The Australian Pipe Band World in which these articles first appeared.

The completion of this book realises an earnest desire by Bruce Campbell to document into an archival form some of Australia's piping history.

Includes contributions from Reg Foreman, John Ferguson and Charlie McInnes.
