Much has been written about the Nordic summer pasture system, especially from a historical agricultural perspective. In this anthology, we instead get to follow the migration of the gales and horn songs from mountain pastures, through art musical compositions, recordings and recordings, to estates and royal salons. A revitalization beyond fences and forests. Everything is mirrored against a historical background of new findings about the prehistoric hunters' animal husbandry, summer pasture carvings, female labor, folk beliefs and the hill of hay as a national romantic symbol. Despite the sharp decline of the mountain huts during the 1900th century, charring and horn melodies are still used in the work with the animals in today's mountain huts, albeit noticeably hidden. Portraits of both summer pasture farmers and grass musicians in our time are highlighted from the silence and show that summer pasture farming is not only our history here, but also our time.
