"Thurlow Lieurance: A Legacy in Native American Flute Music" is an insightful exploration of one of the earliest pioneers who introduced the Native American flute to contemporary music. Lieurance's renowned compositions like "By the Waters of Minnetonka", "Wi-UM", and "By Singing Waters" showcased his talent for adapting traditional indigenous music for the modern stage. Of the numerous flutes he collected, 12 have stood the test of time and are meticulously examined in this study by the accomplished flutist, Mrs. Betty Hensley.



Hensley, a virtuoso with a vast collection of world flutes under her mastery, brings her extensive knowledge of wind instrument tunings and characteristics to this profound examination. Her unique perspective breathes life into these historical pieces.


This newly revised edition features:

  • Detailed analysis of the 12 surviving flutes, delving into their history, tunings, tone, and unique attributes, vividly illustrated with four pages of color photography.
  • An accompanying CD that not only allows listeners to immerse themselves in the haunting sounds of these age-old flutes but also enjoy Lieurance's melodic works performed by Hensley herself.



Published by the Horizons Flute Store and edited by Douglas Spotted Eagle, "Thurlow Lieurance: A Legacy in Native American Flute Music" is more than just a book; it's an invitation to experience a rich musical heritage firsthand.

        Really Fascinating

        This was really interesting to me because I had not heard of this collection. But the pictures of the flutes are very interesting. And give a good background of the instrument. It’s also unique to be able to hear a sample of each instrument. If you have any interest, in the ongoing history of the Native American Flute, this will know the interest to you

        Rarely available insight as to the history of modern NAF

        I love this book for the background on where my modern instruments came from and understanding my old Indigenous-tuned replicas. The CD that came with it of Betty Hensley playing restored old flutes is priceless. Get it while you can if you are interested in NAF history. I’m willing to bet this book will not be reprinted. A fairly thin book, only 32 pages, but so informative for history collector or curious player.
