For all of you that have admired and loved Pete Seeger, his music, and his world-wide efforts to build a peaceful world, this book is a MUST! It includes words & music to over a hundred Pete Seeger songs and the process he went through in writing them.
Most Seeger fans, however, treasure this book primarily for the stories Pete has written about his life and the people he was working with when he wrote each song in the collection. It includes hundreds of photos including many from the Seeger family's own photo albums.This book "breathes" Pete's life & work on every page!
This BRAND NEW EDITION includes 20 additional songs composed since it's earlier edition was published in 1992. It also includes an MP3 disc containing all the songs and song variants. (Use this MP3 disc to listen to what the songs sound like on your computer, download them to your ipod, or use it to burn cd's for your cd player.)
