Whether you are an intense John Denver fan or not, this autobiography is an interesting read. He does a good job of detailing many different facets of his life, from his childhood to his strained relationship with his father, to his musical beginnings, to stardom. Included are explanations of how some of his songs came about. He tells of his marriages and divorces, his children and his passion to fly. Very nice photos throughout the book. Very ironic that he would have written this book so soon before his death. Because he did, it is a treasure and beautiful keepsake for the most devoted fan.

There was not a bigger John Denver fan out there than I was. I saw him in concert numerous times and even met him in person once. His music defined my teenage years, and I still find immense comfort listening to his music. I was so excited when this book came out and bought it immediately. It's good, but it does paint John in a different light than his music does. In places, he even comes across as a bit arrogant. His infidelities so early in his first marriage particularly disturbed me. He makes Annie seem like a shallow socialite, but that is not the impression I get at all from her interviews. I had to remind myself that we are only seeing one side of that divorce; I'm sure Annie could tell a different story. He says they remained friends, but I just don't know. Perhaps there was some self-justification going on in the book? I would like to have read more about his personal life and less about his environmental concerns (while important, I already knew about those). Still, I've read the book twice and enjoyed it both times. I wish he were still alive; it was a sad day when we lost him.

John Denver had an involved life, from his music to romance to activism. Hear it straight from the horses mouth. You may find some of his actions rather out of character (using a chainsaw to cut a table in half because his wife had a stand of trees cut down.) It is a great journey and you will definitely learn things you never knew before.
