Product Details


“A beautiful, honest portrait.”–Los Angeles Times

“A slim, lucid volume . . .  packs in all the key twists and turns in Seeger’s very full life.”–Boston Globe
“Wilkinson has done a magnificent job of creating a picture of a virtuous and principled man.”–Minneapolis Star Tribune
“In prose as unassuming as his subject, Wilkinson captures Seeger’s unpretentious, down-to-earth manner.”–San Francisco Chronicle

“In crisp, elegant prose, Wilkinson outlines Seeger’s early life, his family’s influence upon his work, his activism for peace, civil rights and the environment, and his friendships with other legends such as Woody Guthrie.”–Dallas Morning News
“A quick read that is both pithy and entertaining.”–Christian Science Monitor
“Wilkinson’s biography reads as lucidly as if we were there with him, listening to Seeger’s history as he boils maple sap down to syrup and chops his daily quota of firewood.”—Publishers Weekly
“[Wilkinson] draws a picture of the folk singer not only by summoning up his history, public and private, but by giving us the man observed, in small swatches of manner and conversation.”–Newsday
“Unmistakably affectionate.”—Booklist
