by Pete Seeger


View All Available Formats & Editions


Seeger describes his friends and inspirations, his conflicts with the bosses and the government, his favorite songs, stories, and instruments, and the kind of learning that comes from listening carefully. "A feast of ideas and information of all kinds: bits of philosophy, recollections, advice, directions, instructions, with the experience of thirty years of traveling and singing compressed between the covers. . . . There is humor, wisdom, and much that is outrageous, too. . . . The whole thing is filled with that indefatigable enthusiasm that has imbued Pete's life and work for so long."-Sing Out!
