Editorial Reviews

"Pete Seeger and percussionist/producer Haynes present one of the most original and inspired audiobooks of the last decade with this collection of stories, songs, music, and musings, straight from the mouth and mind of the legendary folk musician himself. Seeger's words are blended with a variety of world music in what amounts to an unforgettable and groundbreaking listen. As a narrator, Seeger's tone is raw, edgy, and, at times, visceral, as he recounts his life and times. Seeger captures listener attention from the very beginning and never lets go. A must-listen for fans."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
