Native Ground Books & Music is a family owned and operated publisher and record label that has been in business since 1974. Annie works with her parents, authors Wayne Erbsen & Barbara Swell, to keep old-time music and cooking traditions alive.

We publish a line of music instruction books (for fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and ukulele), songbooks and cookbooks- they are available from many retailers around the country, but we sure do appreciate when people buy them directly from us!

Our books are available as paperbacks, downloadable PDFs, and we have many of our titles available in Kindle format on Amazon.

Annie specializes in creating custom Kindle editions of heavily formatted books. If you’d like for her to code a Kindle version of your book, drop us a line on the contact page.
